With the lid on and if operational, you cannot use a metal screw driver

housing.

Use a non-metallic trimming tool. They are not expensive.
As an alternative use a plastic knitting needle filed to a chisel-point
(but do a Risk Analysis Assessment first!)

3U, I realize this is a very old thread but I also have a to low on occasion squelch issue with my FSG71M radio however getting it in and out is very difficult, so do you have any idea which way to turn the pot once I gain access and how far to turn it? I only want to do it once.


I just did this, FSG-71 in a Ventus B with S80. I think the S80 was the culprit. I opened the radio and turned the pot FROM 1:00 TO 11:00. It was my first try at an adjustment, just a total guess, and it seems to have worked perfectly. At least it works well on the ground, haven't flown with it yet. When I turn the radio on now, it breaks the squelch in about half a second. Thanks to the person who posted the schematic with the pot location.. I doubt I would have been able to keep the radio in the glider without that info.

I love it, you don't miss the handling you don't have I guess, or that's what I'm telling myself. And yeah, if that yearning ever gets big enough for the old Ventus I trade you straight across at any time .

Well I jumped the gun on that response a bit. Finally went flying and the radio didn't receive anything but a nearby handheld, which is of course what I was testing it with. So I opened the radio and connected it to the panel while everything else was on and adjusted the squelch pot so it just broke the squelch. Haven't flown with this setting yet but it receives from 4 miles away while on the ground. Hoping this works, will report again after I fly with it.

Couple of comments;

1) Thanks to 3U for the information on his web site and the relay repair on the Dittel FSG 71. Very nice indeed.

2) Thanks to Bastoune for pointing out the DG tech note for the location of the internal squelch pot on the Dittel FSG 71. The link given was no longer active but I was able to track down the replacement link.
