Paragon Model 585 Improved AM Broadcast Band Sensitivity

From the Ten-Tec Reflector - September 5, 2008

For those who like to do a little AM broadcast band dxing with their Paragon 585 transceiver, there is a very simple mod that will greatly improve reception.

Normally, for frequencies below 1.7 MHz the Paragon's receive RF amp is bypassed. By simply unplugging the connector going to J16 on the first mixer board this function will be disabled and you will have full sensitivity on the AM broadcast band.

The front panel ATTEN switch will still function and unless you have a high powered broadcast station within a few blocks of your location you won't need to use it.
