Re: G5400 meter lamp mod



Hi Bruce, KE0LX

The pilot lamps PL1 and PL2 for Meters M1 and M2 are connected to
terminals 4 and 5 of transformer.

To replace a lamp with a led connect the anode A of a led to katode K
of a diode and katode K of led to anode A of diode then connect a 1.5 k
resistor in series.

If only one withe led is not sufficient to well illuminate the dial connect
two or more led in parallel reducing 1.5 k accordingly.

I have not tried it on bench but it should work.


                         withe  led
                |--------A-|>|-K-----|
4 ---------|                               |   1.5 k
                |                               |--/\/\/\/\------5
                |--------K-|<|-A-----|   1/4 W
                            diode
