    Yaesu FT-1D issues....

    Yup, if trying to save a channel from vfo mode, the ht says "vfo mode error" instead of programming the channel in memory. It happens whether you're on vfo a or b, and it doesn't matter if it has offset, tones, etc. it just won't take.

    Duplexer Question

    I had a similiar setup a ways back, I had to run a duplexer into the triplexer (basically it split my 2m/440 antenna line to separate 2M and 440 cables that went into the corresponding ports on the triplexer they shared above). then it comes out of that triplexer with one cable into your radio...

    VHF/UHF & 800Mhz Duplexer

    Thanks in advance for any tips and advice! I'm looking into the best/cheapest and most effective way to end up with a duplexer that would allow a 2M/440 antenna and a separate 800Mhz antenna to feed one transceiver. In my area I do a ton of work on 2M/440 in the mobile but also love...

    Icom IC-2820 RX Fan Silencer Mod

    just ordered the 22kOhm resister from digikey that matches the one used in the unit from the factory (except for the value). Any tips on soldering it in? removing them seems straight forward enough but I've never added SMD components before. I hear there is certain resin paste that is helpful....

    Icom 7000

    I was in the market for a great HF rig and wanted either the TS-480 HX or the IC-7000, after playing with both of them a while at HRO I got a lot of information about the better filtering and rx performance on the IC-7000 which ultimately drove me to the purchase. I've owned it two weeks now and...

    Building a simple Alternator whine / ignition filter

    hmmm...... could be a little late for that now that I've glued this thing in strong enough to outlast world war three. That being said, say I skip the powerpoles, would I just solder the connections in line? The radio side seems straight forward enough, red to red, black to black, but on the...

    Building a simple Alternator whine / ignition filter

    What a wonderful suggestion! I've got mine built and ready to throw in line but (and I realize this may sounds stupid), I just am a little confused on the best way to connect. My wiring all terminates to powerpoles and comes direct from the battery --> powerwerx in line 15amp fuse --> radio...
