clean all contacts, on the battery and the charger. I use a pencil eraser if you can get in to the contacts. If it still does not work, it's time for a new charger or battery. The chargers are not heavy duty and fail much more often than heavy duty business radios.
To run an HF transceiver (100 W), the radios normally want to see up to 20 - 35 watts of power available at 12 volts. You earlier referenced the FT-990 HF transmitter, which takes a normal AC voltage input from a line cord. Normally a 20 amp circuit would suffice. Since you did not specify if the radio has the internal heavy duty internal AC switching power supply. For an 110 V connection, the unit requires an 8 amp fuse, and 4 amp for 220. I have included a link where you can download the manual for reference: http://www.download.n7tgb.net/yaesu/FT990/FT-990_Manual.pdf
When the batteries are reaching the end of their life or in need of charging the first thing that is likely to happen is that the unit will be weak when transmitting while receiving just fine. This is because it takes a lot more power from the batteries to transmit than to receive. Try a new set of batteries or if rechargeable then try charging the unit. With regard to regular batteries, make sure your batteries say "alkaline" on them somewhere since they will last much longer and also are more likely not to leak inside which can ruin your radio. Ignore labels on batteries that read "super heavy duty" or other such nonsense. Look for one and only one word "alkaline" on them and buy any brand you want to since cheap or expensive they are basically the same. Don't waste your money or risk your radio by using anything but alkaline batteries.
I made one using heavy duty weather stripping around the lid. It is not made to meet any codes, such as fire. The vent tube was run out a hole near a window. I can open it to top off the water. I use a trickle charger to keep it charged. Was this what you are after?
I'm not sure of what this part is, but Kenwood is a very good Make, so I suggest the following: join yahoo group Specific to your radio Make & Model No., the team there will require as much info from you as possible, so they can help you, you can also download manuals, diagrams and other goodies for your radio(if available), and all this is free.
I hope this has helped you and good luck with the plug.
Radio-to-radio line-of-sight two CT450 radios should be able to communicate 2 miles. Height and placement of your antenna will determines range. Holding the antenna perpendicular to the ground (straight up) will give you the best range. Any obstacles you put inbetween the radios such as structures/trees can reduce range. If talking from inside a building to outside you may only get 1/4 to 1/2 mile. Conversely, if you are on a mountain top, you may be able to talk many miles into a valley below.
