Marti RPT-30 RPU Transmitter Fan Buzz Modification

This modifications is from Marti Electronics service dept. 7/27/95 in a phone conversation with Mike Friedman, Chief Engineer of WRXL radio here in Richmond.

This modification applies to all RPT-30 rpu transmitter units built prior to May 1995.

Problem: Sawtooth waveform causing a buzzing sound in the audio transmission.

Solution: Very carefully place a 220 ufd radial lead capacitor across the fan motor leads. Motor leads terminate on a small 1"x1.5" pc board at pins 2 and 3 on the board.

Connect the negative capacitor lead to the black wire (pin 2), followed by the positive lead to the red wire (pin 3).

This should eliminate the buzz.
