President Grant 2: Unlocked Clarifier?


One of the main problems with using the Grant 2 as an EXPORT radio is that it is stuck to frequencies ending in 5's or 0's.
The radio really should have had a course and fine clarifier much like the old Cobra 148's.
YeticomNZ.com seem have gone part of the way to solve this problem with a video apparently showing an unlocked RX/TX clarifier. If true you would be able to get on all the frequencies in between the 5's and the 0's but you wouldn't have a separate RECEIVE only clarifier which is essential for clear communications on SSB. Maybe a separate control on the side or back of the radio will be required or even changing the clarifier control completely for a course and fine clarifier?
