Re: IC F60V programming

Been working on radios for 18 years. This ICOM got me stumped. Scan edit is enabled. so how do you edit the scan list?? If our guys have the buttons locked, which a soft key is set up to do, when paged, they have to turn it off, then back on to get out of the lock. did I miss something there?? And ...

thank you very much for your fast answer.
Do you know how to modify the D Version to make it possible receiving signals below 440 MHz?

Thanks
Stephan
I am sorry but i have no info on that and do not even know if it is possible.

Re: VXR-9000U Reference Freq Adjust

Hi, I have a VXR-9000 UHF. But I don't get it running in the UHF Ham Band (430-440). The frequencies should be RX 431.350 and TX 438.950. The TX Unit works fine. But the problem is in the RX unit. The lowest frequency I can program is 435.400 MHz. If I set the RX QRG any lower, the receiver doesn't...

Re: voltage ft-1500m

Sorry if that was unclear. If I have the truck running, then press the power button to turn on the radio (ft-1500m), For a moment (a second or two) the screen on the radio shows the amount of voltage it is receiving at that moment. Usually around 13.1 to 13.4. Sounds to me from what your saying is ...

Re: voltage ft-1500m

I guess that must be it. The radio shows the voltage going to the radio when you first turn it on an shows only about 13.1-13.4. Must be shuting down when the voltage is to low. Anybody know a way to boost the power going to the radio? maybe a higher voltage alternator? I am not sure what you mean ...

Re: voltage ft-1500m

Most two way radios operate at optimum @ a steady 13.8VDC, this is most critical during transmit. Have you measured the battery voltage while transmitting on the radio at full power? How old is the battery in your truck? Perhaps it is starting to fail and this is the first sign of that or perhaps th...

Re: ICOM IC735 Blowing Fuse.

Referencing page 6-4 in the service manual of the PA schematic diagram. P5 HV line is actually a 13.8V source. P3 also has a 13.8V line clearly marked. Unplug them and isolate the circuits and check each circuit for a short to ground with a ohm meter. If either of them have a short to ground you wil...

Re: ICOM IC735 Blowing Fuse.

What 3 amp fuse are you referring to? Where is this fuse located and do you have a schematic diagram? Could be an internally shorted capacitor. Go to IC10 on the PL Unit and check pin 8 to ground. If there is a short it could be C18 or C247. Same procedure for all of the boards - check the 13.8V lin...

Re: TM-742A WON'T HOLD MEMORY

Old post I know but thought i would just answer it in case anyone else needs to know. The 641/642/741/742/941/942 series use the same lithium back up battery. The Kenwood "East Coast Parts" part number = W09-0573-05 and this battery if it falls close to 3.0 V is just about exhausted and should be re...

No, nothing is different from the one that was always at batboard.batlabs.com.

Does this new board have advertising? It must because I get "it contains content belonging to the category of: Spam "
this "blocked" message at work from our Barracuda IT web filter. Seems its being blocked due to some advertisements
and I have now way to over ride it.
