Replacement T/R Relay for Eagle
Oli, DL3MCO has suggested replacing the Ten-Tec EAGLE's original AIXCOM T/R Relay with an SDS DR12V Reed Relay.
I am not recommending anyone perform this modification. I am simply passing along the information. Do your own due dilligence - and don't call me if something fails!
THERE ARE NO STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS MOD.
It is claimed that this mod is very easy and from the pictures (see photo gallery below), it seems easy enough to do for anyone who can solder.
I have used these relays in several small transistorized amplifiers with 200w or more and never had any problems. See magazine article below (in German).

The KL500 is a 300w amplifier.
