There are three PC boards in the rig. The TX and RX boards are on the top and bottom of the rig. The logic board is behind the front panel, and the LCD display and front panel switches are mounted on it. It is the logic board which will be the object of your surgery.

D-19 is at the 1 O'clock position near the edge of the board, and
D-7 is at 2 O'Clock and adjacent to the battery.
