i've just picked up a used Ham International UK transceiver. There is no identifying name on the case. It is quite a small radio and this is one of the reasons I chose it 6" wide 8" deep and 2" high. The fascia is basically split into 3 segments - the left one has a signal/power analogue meter, microphone connection, On/Off rotary switch and 10w/5w/.5w selector switch; the middle section has a large black plastic rotary channel selector (1-40) a red 'tx' light and the name Ham International UK in white writing under the selector; the right section has the channel display window, a High Medium and Low selector (120 channels), a rotary squelch which has a pull out facility to select FM. The frequencies, starting with low band is 25.7mhz (which I don't need) ending on 26.958mhz. Mid is 26.968 ending 27.408 and Hi is 27.415 ending 27.855. Can anybody help identifying this rig? and can I have it adapted to start on Lo @ 26.965 ending 27.405, Mid - UK freqs 27.60125 ending 27.99125 and Hi 27.410 ending 27.605. It would be ideal for mobile use - no messing with clarifiers etc as with the large Multi 2.

Hi. It sounds like the modelĀ UK 120FM. I wouldn't know about the possible modding though.

Thank you mate - bang on. Found it on the site. Look for a rig doctor round here and see if it's worth having it played with to give full European and UK channels.

I have a soft spot for Ham International radios.👍😎 My first Multimode radio was a Ham International MM2 and got me started on ssb, back in the day. As I remember on that particular model, it had mid/hi/super hi, although the bands were labelled low/mid/hi.

The Ham Int. UK is the same radio as the Colt 444, Tristar 727 and Superstar 95 for reference.
The bands on the Ham Int. are usually 120 up (26.965 - 28.305Mhz), others are usually 40 lo, 40 mid and 40 hi (26.515 - 27.855Mhz) so it looks as if your xtals have been changed. They use the LC7120 pll chip so isn't an easy conversion to UK 40, normally a piggy back pll board is needed. Or you could just tune the xtals for the UK offset and use a chart.

Here's a copy of the schematic: https://ibb.co/bKRsGxb

Thanks everybody for the info on this set. Might just leave it as it is. Bit more research needed.
