Ok.. I am electronic suave if you would, and this very coming friday I am going to order the latest release of V1 from the V1 website direct. This will be my third V1 to own. Here is my questions.
I am looking to solder the different colored LED's into the unti for both strength meter, and also for band detected.
Is there a resource for this? I have read the stickies and found nothing. I did a search on this forum and found individuals who modded their own, but nothing precise to assist me.
I learned that particular releases have voltage variation issues, or higher voltage LED's cannot be used etc..
In simple. Here is a few questions I have. First off difficulty level ? As with cleaning integrated circuits I will be getting necessary chemicals etc, but will be using an older school iron solder. I can purchase better soldering guns if necessary, but if it is not necessary then it's not necessary.
My question here is. Where and what size LED's to buy that are exact equivalents to the RED led's. I'm really looking to use simply BLUE, and maybe GREEN.
My plan of modding is to change the first few signal strength red LED's to blue. Keeping the high strength color default as RED will = Dangerous level of signal, and blue = less to worry about. If there are applicable green LED's I would like to use green for 1,2 on strength meter. Blue for 3,4, and leave the rest red\default.
Then a Green for K band, and a blue for KA band would be nice too! Leaving the rest as default.
Is there considerations experienced modders here can provide me prior to me taking on this task. I would like to think this should be as simple as finding relevant equal LED's of different color, and simply soldering them lmao.
Couldnt be any harder than when I code in c++. It's just steps!
I appreciate any help provided. Thank you ahead of time for any contributors.
Keep in mind. I will order the V1 this friday. So I will have the latest release available!
