    I have a radio, antenna, and power supply at Would there happen to be a coupon discount code? It already has free shipping. And it's my first mobile/base radio. It's a Yaesu Ft-2980r. Thanks

    Update: Yaesu has asked me to send the radio in for service. I asked a fellow ham to bring his FT-857D to my shack and his radio worked fine. I also recently purchased a brand new Icom-7200 and that radio is working fine in my shack. So, whatever is going wrong is apparently the fault of my FT-857D. I am surprised that no one has reported the same problem as me, but I guess the fault is isolated to my rig. I will let you know what the end result is after Yaesu takes a look at the radio.

    Exactly, for 99% of the people that operates HF phone, it is just single side spatter anyways, who cares, as long as I can hear you and you can hear me..

    Donít get them chewed, a cat attacks with claws unfortunately and is quite startling in the deep of sleep. Problem is he and the pack get fed, well are supposed to be fed at 0800 not 0530 or earlier. No bueno with him waking me up as it gets the pack going and a puppy Catahoula in the pack along with my difficulty sleeping anyways from combat stuff is not a good mix. So instead of enjoying retirement and the later wake up I end up not getting enough, none, or too much when feeling bad. Need stability in order to stay focused with a traumatic brain injury, and sleep to help with not only cognitive, mpbut migraines, dexitiry issues, control of motor function, speech, and elevated pain. All side effects of the TBI from a Explosion of a Katyusha Rocket in near proximity in combat. So regular regular regulated sleep a definite plus. Only time up before the furries besides like now as I cant sleep. Is when getting up before the other furries to help stock the freezer with ďfree rangeĒ meat!

    No I have not, have had a General Technician since around 94, not interested in going more, let expire KF4LZL due to military commitments and deployments. Havenít gotten again because I just donít use it in that way anymore. It being a Radio. . Interests now are using murs of course no lic, gmrs, but really donít talk on 2meter anymore. Interests changed really besides talking to wifey on property, as well as scanning and RX emergency channels mostly. My interest lie in emergency communications and group communications with emphasis on security, small form factor mobile and simple base with radio tracking ability by user. Refreshing knowledge on programming emphasis on cros TX/RX. Programming values using chirp, not around when I was into it before. That would be the gist of it I think. Hobbies moved to hunting, tracking, tactical training, tactical medicine, firearms, gunsmith, shooting, milsurps, military history, upholding my sworn oath and Constitution! Think that about covers it all. Probably missing a...

    Fish finders. I have a crude one on my Icom 706, but never cared for it. The new stuff, holee cow! But to me it's still a fish finder. I rather enjoy the chase and seeing where everything is seems counter intuitive to me. To each his own but that's me, YMMV.

    Good day, I am an owner of a vx-8 and having troubles tuning to 8.33 frequencies (air band). I have selected: Band 3 (VFO/Air) channel spacing: auto I am able to enter e.g. 122.000 Mhz but I am not able to enter new air radio frequencies like 124.030. It will only accept 124.038.

    Double checked and.... no. Just for kicks, I set the tone in FM mode (remember, the modulation occurs in CW mode) to 241.1 (was 88.1) and will check if it made any difference. Thanks for your reply!

    The only one i have used is the function in chirp. Though looking at some of theninfo on the keypad functions and prgramming may give you an option through the radio itself. Good luck.

    Was into radios a good bit in the warly 90s priorities shifted and let others handle the tech. Anyways much was lost betweent then and now. I want to get some knowledge back as my priorities have shifted. I am getting into emergency communications for self and family, and extended group. I hope to be able to polish off my knowledge and full in my understandinng of certain basic, such as channel security, transmission of data, emergency coms. I hope to be able to run things off if others and learn as well as observe. Hopefuly getting a better understanding of ho, why, as well as terminology. I appreicte it. Btw retired Army OIF combat veteran. Retired up in NGA with my service dog, wife, two other pups, and my wifes cat who thinks he is part of the pack. Chaotic but furry and warm nights snuggled by oups my life is with lots of tail wagging and morning kisses by a cat who still attacks my feet if I dont get up to feed them in the morning!

    Spamcan started a thread FT-817ND carrier hum in Yaesu
    Bought an 817ND and 6 mo later, I'm finally setting it up for its first operation (FT-8) using an SCU-17 and my Nextbook (Win) and WSJT-X. Got it all set up, running, and tried to bag me some QSOs and do a few CQs. No luck. I noticed, however, my signal out had a kind of fuzzy aspect to its generated tones. Hmmm. Disconnected the peripheral stuff and fired it up barebones on CW. Same buzz to the carrier when monitored on another rcvr. Modulation even registers abt 10-15% on a modulation meter. Uh oh! Swapped power over from the NC-72B brick to the internal battery @ 9VDC and hit the key.... (all this on a dummy load) same problem!. Beat the hum against a sig gen to determine its freq and it's about 120 hz! Can't be the mains or external pwr supply 'cause the battery operation result is identical. Anybody heard of this before? Any hints for troubleshooting? Any recommendations of a service outfit/person? I'm all ears! DE KA7MWQ and listening!

    Spamcan replied to a thread FT817 PTT with CAT cable in Yaesu
    I'm new to this CAT business and the FT-817. I've set up WSJT-X on my pc with my SCU-17 Interface Unit (IU). A few thoughts... did you install your interface unit drivers before attaching your IU to your PC? In your device drivers' area, have you selected the appropriate driver(s) for the IU? Are you using a "virtual serial" port? Have you selected the proper serial protocol, for example, 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit. Oh, and don't forget the proper baud rate set on your 817 (default is 4800 baud). Took me three days to set mine up and then found out my new 817 has a ~120 hz modulation on its carrier! Looking for a good service person and/or troubleshooting hints! For my IU, it requires an A-B USB cable from the computer to the SCU-17. From the SCU-17 I must run two cables to the 817 rear, Data and ACC. The transmit function must arrive at the 817 through the acc input, the mic's PTT line, or the mic's audio with VOX selected.. I believe.

    Please help. Unsure of a few things here listen only on emergency channels. As far as others want to be able to rx/tx with a bit of privacy if needed away from other chatter if on main channel listed in MURS, MARINE and GMRS, HAM. I would appreciate any help in getting this working. Will be from radio to radio coms. Thanks everyone. Disclaimer: fully aware of any and all licensing requirements.

    This is Whiskey 6 November Lima Alpha, Jody, in So. Cal! I just got into the ham hobby in January. I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones... my YL got into it with me! We both took our Tech exams on Feb. 3, and had our calls by the 5th! In Feb. we studied for our General and passed that on March 3! Still awaiting verification of that through the FCC. Don't know what happened there. But now we're studying for our Extra! We belong to a few local clubs, but so far I'm not seeing all the friendly faces that I've read about in these groups. Mostly the old-timers are stand-offish and a couple even downright rude! Anyway, enough of that here, don't wanna get a rep. 73s Jody, W6NLA

    W9PVA replied to a thread Just bought a YAESU FT-60R in Yaesu
    I have a Yaesu FT-60R that I have had for a few years. It has always worked well but recently when I try to transmit I get a three-tone beep and the display immediately goes to displaying the voltage which is usually 7.2 or 7.1. no transmission occurs. The receive works OK. I suspect I have something set wrong or somehow have transmit locked out but anything I have tried to remedy it doesn't work. Anyone have any ideas what the problem may be?
