There is no schematic. It was never passed on to LnR by the designer.
The pin out is listed in the manual located on the LnR homepage.January 14, 2017 at 7:08 pm in reply to: MTR5B interrupts with band randomly #3264
Try removing the the internal battery and reinserting it. That may cure it. Be sure also you are not in the beacon mode.January 14, 2017 at 7:07 pm in reply to: How do I adjust contrast on MTR5? #3263
The contrast is not adjustable.July 29, 2016 at 6:01 pm in reply to: LD-11 Block Schematics #3166
Go to the “Manuals” section of the LnR web site. Download the manual for the radio. It has all the technical specs for the radio.July 21, 2016 at 1:30 pm in reply to: LD-11 / Bad SSB Audio #3162
Ver 1.00 is the latest for the LD-11July 21, 2016 at 1:29 pm in reply to: LD-11 / Bad SSB Audio #3161
Everyone’s voice and mic position is different. I would start with no compression and try each TX EQ setting to find what is right for you.July 19, 2016 at 8:30 pm in reply to: LD-11 / Bad SSB Audio #3158
I don’t think it is related to the firmware. If you are concerned, you can update on LnR’s web site.
I would suggest you check your menu settings.
Make sure you are not “close talking” the mic. Keep it 5 to 7 inches from your lips.
Check your compression setting.
Adjust your TX EQ settings in the menu.
If all that fails, it may be a bad mic.July 14, 2016 at 11:29 am in reply to: LD-11 (Prolific) firmware update #3150
You will need to contact Larry or Ryan at http://www.lnrprecision.com/about-us/

If you have the means, you might try removing the two side screws, knurled nuts over phone and key jack and separate bottom cover. Remove the battery for 60 seconds. Put it all back together and set the cw vox back to 300ms our so. If that doesn’t work you may have fried the display? 12 volts max i believe.July 10, 2016 at 11:05 pm in reply to: LD-11 Digital filters #3143
Power the radio off. While holding the “finction” key, power the radio up. Release the function key when it powers up. But be very careful. There are things in there that will render the radio dead.
Power the radio off after setting your filters. When you power back up, you will have to reset your user settings again. AGC, CWVox, WPM, Pitch etc.March 19, 2016 at 2:49 am in reply to: Back Panel #2592
In the case of the LD5 and FX4a it would be side panels. For the MTR it would be top edge. Download the manuals from the website and it will show you what you need.

Based on the ARRLreview and tests, none were detectable on the receive end and were not transmitted at adetectable level. So I doubt there will be any changes in the near future.

That should be SWR meter on the 857D…..not SET meter.September 22, 2015 at 12:28 am in reply to: Bought an EF-Quad and am open to any, and all, tuning tips! #1084
While an antenna analyzer or SWR meter make it much easier, the SET meter on the 857D will work. As you say, make the initial tests at lowest power setting of 5 watts. If you are going to be operating mostly SSB, you will need to shorten the main radiator by a substantial amount. If you operate mostly CW you will only need to shorten it a small amount. It will come out of the box tuned right at our just below the bottom end of the bands. It is manufactured so it can be used on MARS/RACES and Civil Air Patrol frequencies as well as Amateur frequencies. The trimming/tuning procedures are well covered in the manual that can be downloaded from the LnR web site.

There are none in the plans. The existing EF-80 is good for 100 watts a and I doubt there will ever be one to operate over that.
