DX 6i Backlight with HK Backlight

The HK Backlight kit is Changed by Tech4rc to work with the DX 6i, if you have the Tech4rc backlight for the 6i, it will not work in a TH 9X or 9X. YouTube video is not clear on MOD of HK backlight.
I checked the idea of a direct plug in to the main PCB of the DX 6i, and found the + and - for the display reversed and the swiched + wire (BAT) would be the red wire next to the black on the HK jumper plug. So a small bit of soldering is required to MOD the HK backlight PCB.
You could reduce the 470 ohm resistor by putting a nother resistor in parallel with it or replace it with a lesser value. I like the display not too bright at night and for SIM use. Some like it bright, so check the wattage of your resistor choice.
