Kd4amg,

Below is your post and mine and Bruces where you asked the same question on the HTX-10 and your reply yesterday in the "Ask The Tech Area".

Your question was already asked and answered for you on the HTX-10 by myself and Bruce.

Kd4amg,

NO the HTX-10 cannot be converted / modified for 11 Meter use.

But, the Magnum 257 can be converted / modified for 11 Meter use.

rats...i was hoping that by now that some one would have found out a way to do it...I have searched a lot of cb web sites to see if I could find one...some mentioned a model htx-100 but that is a different radio ( inside and outside controls, you can not get these 2 mixed up !!)...I was a hoping there was / is a mod for the htx - 10 since I have a very small vehicle and dont really have enuf room for a ranger 2950...but the magnum is the same size rig ( what is the INSIDE differences between a magnum 257 and a htx - 10 ..they LOOK basically the same on the OUTSIDE )...must be the CPU or IC s in the units... tell me if you know...but thank you for the info any way...guess I will either trade this off or keep it and take it to the HUNTSVILLE HAMFEST in August and try to sell / trade it there...thanks anyway kd4amg ( ROBERT )

If your Colt 357 has the C5121 PLL it CANNOT be Modified either.

I own a Htx 100. Could never find a decent conversion mod. This radio works ok on 10 meters only so it sits on my desk collecting dust. Also this radio only has upper SB I think.

Your correct also the HTX-100 usb only and CW! and HTX-10 are VERY DIFFRENT the 10 is am/both SSB's and FM.
The MAG-257 ( OLD ) except for CPU is the same as the HTX-10 ...... and evenyone knows the only way i will give up either is if they pry them out of my cold DEAD hands!
