SOURCE: VHF transmit power

Hi, It is not typical but neither is there a problem with the radio. Transmit Power output is loosely dependent on the: 1. Frequency or channel you are transmitting. Normally, Marine Band VHF are calibrated for max (25 in your radio) at Ch16 or 156.800Mhz; 2. If the SWR of the antenna is not a flat 1.0, power tends to go down; 3. After some time, the TX side of the radio needs to be re-calibrated; 4. Power Supply - some radios will push max output only when powered with 13.8 and tends to go down when used with 12 volts. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: I have a Raymarine VHF

Hi,

To my knowledge, Ch 37 (M1) is used by the UK Marinas and Yacht Clubs, however, the Raymarine Ray45VHF uses the US VHF Marine Radio Channels allocations/standard where there is no Ch 37 (actually no Chs 29-59).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: Midland rechargeable battery packs won't recharge and vibrate

Hello batterbum, from the info you listed you have the right battiers & charger, with alkaline the radios work leads to wrong or a bad batch of Ni-MH battiers. Vibrations from a battery pack states too much current being drawn for battery capacity. Note: depleting a battery and recharging with a charger will place the battery in a false full charge state. Recharging a depleted battery with a DC power supply with current limit can reboot the battery to a 90% cycle. I suggest returning battiers for correct replacements, if they are correct 'by the book' ask for the highest in mAhr specs. Please inform me of your outcome. Good Luck

STD-FNB-83 1400mAh NiMH Replacement Battery Pack for HX370S Handheld VHF Radio won't hold a charge


Hi Sarah,

Don't despair, there is a solution to this sticky problem, it will cost a little more, try the Lithium Ion version battery, these can be purchased online at ebay for a much more reasonable price than in some stores.

The make of your radio is the VERTEX Standard, is that correct?

If so, you'll have no problems finding your batteries under Electronics section on ebay.

I hope you find this solution helpful.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Jim

Your VHF lives in a fairly harsh marine environment and you're correct in thinking "tuner cleaner" might be the answer. I believe that your volume control is simply dirty. I would suggest using silicone spray (WARNING- Use ONLY the safe for plastics type.) to clean it. I've had good success just removing the control knob and blasting the pot, working it back and forth. You MIGHT wish to do this with the power off however, unless you have a great set of earplugs.

You mentioned that you have a handheld VHFas well. Any chandlery will carry an adapter (about $10) to let you hook your portable to the big antenna should a problem with your marine VHF arise. We've had the occasion once to have to do this and we were glad we carry the handheld aboard at all times.

Cheers!

This is almost always caused by a poor ground. I would suggest you run your ground wire (larger the better) back right to the negative terminal of the battery.

I have a one year old Raymarine 218 vhf which has been transmitting properly however the receiving has been spotty. I can sometimes only get about 1 mile reception. Lately even the one mile reception has a...


The main cause for lack of reception or transmit distance is the PL259 connector on the antenna coax that plugs into the back of the VHF. Check to make sure this connector is a high quality, marine grade connector. If it screws on and the coax shield is not soldered to the connector I recommend replacing the connector and soldering it. If the problem still exists I would try a different antenna to see if this is the problem. It is possible that the radio itself has a problem, but check these other issues first. Raymarine has a 3 year warranty on their VHFs so you could send it back for a no charge repair if the antenna doesn't solve your problem.

Good luck!

The VHF radio receives but will not transmit more than a coulpe hundred feet. I tryed new anntena and coaxe but it didn't help. 12.4 volts going into the radio. Any ideas would be great Thanks Scott


Check the connector on the back of the radio and make sure it is a solder type connector. The connectors that are twisted together never work well. The shield of the coax needs to be soldered to the outside of the connector and the inner portion needs to be soldered to the center.

There also could be a problem with the radio so if that doesn't work I would recommend taking it to a marine electronics dealer for them to test the radio.

Handheld Marine Radio


This applies to all battery powered radios. Take out the battery and measure the voltage to see if it is indeed charged. If it's not, then the fault is the charger or the battery or both. If the battery voltage shows that it is fully charged, then clean the terminals on the battery and on the radio with a pencil eraser to remove any corrosion. If still no joy, then look up in your user's manual on how to do a reset. If you don't have a manual, get on the ICOM website and download one.

Good luck.
