Finally got my Icom IC551 Working on 230V

The IC551 is a (in my humble opinion) good, fair priced, Monoband 6 meter transceiver.

I,ve bought mine several years ago, on Ebay and it had to come from USA.

It was 115V, had no FM unit an no VOX, but it worked.

I,ve found a NOS IC-EX107 VOX unit, built it in and Modified the Power Supply PCB for 230V. Finally, its working OK.

Now my Triplet is complete, 3 monobanders: IC251, IC451 and a IC551.

More news and pictures soon.
