    Default Syncro Landmaster

    Anyone have any info on this radio?

    Im looking for any info available in particular the diode array/matrix.

    If theres a manual or instruction book I can photostat or get electronically even better.

    Thanks
    Terry

    I would like some info about this radio as well please.

    I was given an old radio the other day and was wondering whether or not it was any good. Should I go to the expense of fixing it or would it be better to go for a new radio or even go FM ??

    Unhappy Finding out

    Well this radio is about 30 yrs old I am told but it is still in good nic so don't want to give up on it. Someone said I can put it on a Spectrum Anyliser (hope I got that right) to find out what frequencies the diode matrix is tuned into. Can any one enlighten me??

    A Frequency Counter will determine the frequency it is on, but you still require the diode matrix chart to 're-programme' the radio. I don't have any info on this, perhaps a radio ham might be able to assist?

    Thumbs up Syncro Landmaster

    Go to the SARL web site and look at general forum. I have started a thread about the Syncro Landmaster. Hope to get some finer points from a HAM.

    I phoned Keith and spoke to him - sounds like a fantastic guy. I dropped him a mail and he will forward the matrix when he can.
    PM me your email addy and I'll forward whatever he sends me.
    Cheers

    Don't know if it will help at all guys, I have the Landmaster S and the manual that came with it. If required I can scan the owners manual and forward to whoever needs.

    Exclamation No more Syncro

    I got rid of the Syncro Landmaster. I first registered and went out and bought an antenna then tested the radio. Could not get anything so went to a chap in PMB that I have been trying to locate for ages.....well he put it on his bench and tested it but there were faults he said it was a very difficult radio to work on No garanteethat he could fix the problems So i got a second hand Dragon from him.... That is the end of the syncro so thanx for all the help and good luck Bomtek.

    Well I still dont have the matrix but did get the user manual from Stevie. I will find someone who has a 29mhz and test it, if it doesnt work, I'll probably go the same route as you

    Hi Stevie.
    Have just been on the site looking for info on the Landmaster Syncro cb radio and came across this thread. I have just been given one that I am assured is in perfect working condition but would love to have a manual for it. Do you still have a manual for this radio? If so, is it possible for you to let me have a copy of it? my email is [email protected]. If not, thanks anyway.
