This particular IC came out of a very old VHF band radio, from the early 90’s. The die was encased in a custom ceramic package, like every other IC in the radio, with a custom part number. I managed to identify it from the markings on the silicon.
This was a pretty powerful MCU for it’s time, with 16K of onboard ROM, 512 bytes of both RAM & EEPROM, a 16-bit timer, 8-bit ADC, SPI & a MC68HC11 CPU core.
Following on from the earlier power tests on my Baofeng HTs, here’s the readings from the Wouxun KG-UV950P. Power is a little lower than specified, but this is probably due to the supply voltage being a bit less than 13.8v. These readings were taken at a supply voltage of 12.88v.
The same frequencies were used, 145.500 & 433.500 for the VHF/UHF tests. For the 6/10m tests 27MHz & 50MHz were used.
The power meter was connected with 1 metre of RG58 dual-screened cable with N-type connectors.
I’ve noticed that the RF power output from the Chinese radios can be quite variable from model to model, and even from individual radios of the same model & batch.
I’ve bought an RF Power meter (GY561) to do some tests on the HTs I have at present.
All tests were performed with the radio fully charged & still on the charging base, to make sure the supply voltage remained constant at 8.4v throughout the tests.
Frequencies used were 145.500 & 433.500 for VHF & UHF respectively.
The power meter was connected with ~8″ of RG174 Coax.
