ALINCO DJ-C1 DATA
The DJ-C1 is an amateur radio “credit card” transceiver
with VFO & 21 channels (1-20 + CALL). Has built-in microphone
on front; requires external earphone or speaker-mike (2.5
mm plug). Transmits 0.3 W 144-148 MHz, receives 136-174 FM
& 118-136 AM, via integral lithium-ion battery. The extend-able
(& breakable!) antenna must be in fully extended position
& straight up when transmitting.
TO TURN UNIT ON, SET VOLUME & SQUELCH, AND TRANSMIT:
Power up with PWR OFF-ON Switch on top left. Transmit via
PTT on left; red LED confirms.
Push VOL/SQL(RPT) once for Volume. Use UP/DOWN to set volume
from 1 (low) to 8 (high).
Push VOL/SQL(RPT) a second time to set Squelch from 0 (open)
to 5 (tight); normally “1.”
TO SELECT FREQUENCY:
To cycle between VFO & Memory Modes, push V/M(MW). Memory
Mode is indicated by M & Channel Number in Display; VFO
Mode by frequency only. Tune via UP or DOWN keys.
To tune VFO in 1 MHz steps, push F briefly until F appears
in Display & use UP or DOWN keys.
To scan frequencies/channels, push & hold UP or DOWN.
Any key stops. Decimal blinks & unit beeps markers when
tuning/scanning: double (tone rising or falling) at MHz, single
at 0.5 MHz.
To change tuning step, while in VFO Mode push F briefly &
use UP/DOWN keys. PTT sets.
TO SET REPEATER OFFSET:
In VFO Mode, push F briefly, then VOL/SQL(RPT) to cycle among
+, -, & Simplex.
Then use UP/DOWN to select offset frequency. PTT sets.
TO SET PL TONES:
In VFO Mode, push & hold F until F blinks, then use VOL/SQL(RPT)
to turn T on/off.
Use UP/DOWN keys to select one of 39 subaudible transmit tones.
Push PTT to set.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:
In Memory Mode, select channel to be programmed. Then push
V/M(MW) to enter VFO Mode.
Select characteristics (rcv. freq, offset, PL Tone on/Off,
tone freq). Push F then V/M(MW) to set.
To program Call, push Call(Step) to go to Call Mode, push
F, then V/M(MW). “C” blinks. Select characteristics
(freq, offset, PL Tone on/off, tone freq). Push V/M(MW) to
In normal tuning or scanning of memories, only channels programmed
with a frequency are shown. To display all channels including
unprogrammed channels, push F, then tune via UP/DOWN.
To erase a memory, select channel, push F, then V/M(MW).
TO DEACTIVATE SQUELCH MOMENTARILY: Push MONITOR. Same cancels.
(If an offset has been selected, unit receives the reverse
frequency; “Busy” blinks in Display while reverse
TO CHANGE TUNING STEPS:
In VFO Mode, push F, then Call(Step), then use UP/DOWN to
select tuning step. PTT sets.
TO USE BATTERY SAVE MODE AND RECHARGE INTEGRAL LITHIUM-ION
Push & hold F until F blinks, then push DOWN. Display
shows “bS.on” or “bS.off.” PTT sets.
Recharging Li-Ion battery requires regulated 4.27 V via EDH-26
with external DC 9-12 VDC via EDC-76. Green LED = Charging.
Off = Charged. Red (for more than 1-2 seconds) = Problem.
TO RESET ALL SETTINGS (channel memories are lost): Hold in
F & V/M(MW) while turning on.
