Question about Vertex FNB-33, YAESU,FT-11R,FT-41R,FT-51R, 4.8v 1700mAh NiCd 2-Way Radio
I have downloaded the schematic for the FT-11R. It shows a
"Contact Unit" as the interface between the rest of the radio and the
supplied battery which is 4.8 VDC. The radio is supposed to be able to operate
up to 9.6 VDC.
The problem is that the supplied battery pack and the radio have 4 pins going from the radio to the battery pack. Clearly, one pin is + 4.8 VDC, one is ground. The problem is what is the function of the other two pins?
One is labeled "Battery Select" and the other "Adjust" on the schematic, but what do these really do?
Has anyone simply hooked up the + and minus leads to a bench power supply without causing any harm?

P.S. I can forward the schematic of this interface unit as a .jpg file attached to an email if this will help respond to the above question.
The battery select determines whether you're using a NiCd or Alkaline battery, I believe the "adjust" is used to put the radio into service mode. If there's not an "auxiliary power input" you can hook up the bench supply to, check the battery output for the voltages and polarities, and hook up your supply accordingly.

Yes, it is possible to use the FNB38 NiMH batteries or any other battery as long as it is the same size and the same volt. Once the battery can fit into the radio and charger and has the same volt, then it is definitely going to work.
I hope the above is clear and understandable, if not, please let me know.
