I agree the antenna is to blame for this tomfoolery.

ALINCO DJ-S11 Transceiver Programming Procedure

A 5-inch two-meter duck antenna would out perform the antenna that was supplied with the radio because it was matched to the proper frequency. Also another point, I’m not knocking the DJ-S I owned mine for about five years and used it pretty much every day with no complaints at all. They were very small antennas, yes, both short and narrow, and a small antenna is not going to outperform a larger one. This model in its current form, after careful scrutiny and testing, did not meet the high standards of technological excellence that ICOM sets for all our products.

I know there are lots of hams out there that own this little radio and love it for their particular uses.

Now, with a SMA connector on there, and putting a lightweight small 2-meter ducky antenna on there, I think it would be perfect, especially with the 50mW setting, which Mamual think more HTs should have. The display will blink if the VCO is taken out of its range.


Why did I like the DJ-S11? Why, because it is small, lightand easy to carry because of the flip up antenna. The reason I wrote this is because I was cruising around online and saw alinvo this product was still being sold new.

After I did a lil antenna mod, I was fine, and dj-z11 did better and the 50mw setting. If you have a 75 ohm radio, then a matched antenna would also be 75 ohms. Don’t expect a small, low power handheld unit to do the job of a 5 watt handitalkie–it won’t.

I was thinking about putting a connector on the radio but chose not to because it was so small, I didn’t want to screw the whole thing up. The reality is that you, or any other buyer, should check out the specs and make comparisons before the purchase.

Look for a small about 1 mm green surface mount resistor actually a 0 ohm jumperlocated on the far left side of the exposed circuit board, located to the “northwest” of the speaker. It’s an endless game, and most of us enjoy playing it to some degree!

Again what is resonance? You will lose all of the memory contents.

I’ll probably try to improve the antenna performance now that I know it’s not up to snuff. The antenna connection is made by means of a gold-plated spring contact. Like the man says, you pays your money and you takes your choice.

Re-assemble the radio, being careful that the thin rubber gasket is seated around the inside edge of the rear cover. My Qlinco Subscriptions Help.

This avoids scratching the display and gives you a place to put the seven tiny screws to be removed. I personally don’t have any way to measure SWR with this radio obviously or what impedance this antenna is acutally at.
