I have a few baofeng UV5R handhelds sitting around that only transmit, the receiver is damaged.
What I would like to do with these is build a foxhunt transmitter. Sure, I could set it to low power (1 watt) and put it through a less efficient antenna, where it will radiate less ERP wise, but it will still get quite hot and waste the battery.
Does anybody know of any way to decrease these Chinese handhelds transmit power below 1 watt? Maybe destroy the final amplifier? Give it less voltage on the input? Change resistor values? I don't care if I fry the radio in the process, I have nothing else to do with it.
