How do I change my American standard horizon hx851 to receive Australian channels


To change this radio from Canadian to USA or to International frequency band plans, hold down the [16/9] key and press the [CLR (WX)] key. The band will change from Canadian, to USA, then to International on each press.
Australia uses the International marine band plan.
Have fun.

I cant talk on any frequency over 148.000 anyone know why?!


This is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. It will only transmit on the 2-meter Amateur band (144-148 MHz) but has expanded receiver coverage from 136-174 MHz which includes Public Service and Commercial 2-Way Radio bands. Please note that an Amateur License is required to operate on the 2-meter Amateur Band.

Any frequency over 148.000 i cant talk on, i can just listen. anyone know why?yaesuft1900r


The Yaesu FT1900R is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. Although the receiver covers from 136-174 MHz, will only transmit from 144-148 MHz. Please note that you do need an Amateur (Technician Class or above) License to transmit on the 2-meter Amateur Band. You no longer need to pass a Morse Code test to get an Amateur License. You still have to pass a written exam, but that isn't difficult if you are willing to study a bit. Contact your local Ham Radio Club or the American Radio Relay League (A.R.R.L.) for more information.

W do I turn off squelch control on a digitech DC-1065 marine radio hand held 5 Watt


Hi David,

Before I try to give advice, I need more info.

I possess a Digitech DC1065 UHF 80 Channel CB hand held, so there seems to be some confusion here.

I live near Perth, Western Australia.

Firstly, How many channels does your radio have?

If the answer is 80, then what you have is a UHF CB, not a marine band radio.

Marine band is VHF with 87 Channels, in Australia that is, and the default channel is always 16.

Digitech are an Australian radio manufacturer, so you'll get great backup service.

If your radio is not defaulting to Ch16, then I am right about it being a UHF CB.

Therefore, it is useless for VHF anything, let alone Marine band.

I'm almost 100% sure this is a UHF CB in your possession.

Try this to prove me right please.

Reply to me with your Country and nearest city, I'll then be able to find a solution for you real quick, though I believe I already have.

Looking forward to your response.

Regards,
Peter

Radio not receiving on any channel


Hi Mike,

The manual for this radio (in Adobe .pdf format) is available for download directly from Icom America, free of charges.

Since the "AquaQuake" function works and you do hear static when the squelch is off, that is sufficient to let us know that the voice coil of the speaker is functional and should produce sounds with the right signal applied.

The first thing to determine is if you're close enough to another operating transmitter for the radio to receive a signal. One of the 10 weather channels the radio is capable of tuning should be close enough produce some intelligible audio from the speaker - assuming the squelch setting isn't set too high.

If a WX channel works, then you'll need to see if there's a VHF Marine band transmitter operating nearby. You might need to set another Marine band radio receiver up to verify that there is indeed a signal present on the particular Marine band channel that you're monitoring. A list of frequencies is published on pg 27 (of the manual linked above) in case you need to convert between channel and frequency to tune on a non-channelized radio.

Outside of that, there's little the end user can do without specialized test equipment, schematics and of course, training. Many shops will be happy to provide an estimate for repair when provided with a small bench diagnostic fee. This fee is usually applied towards an authorized repair by most reputable repair shops.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Bands covered by Furuno FS-1502


It doesn't appear to cover the ham bands, only maritime. This radio is also not type approved for operation on ham bands either.

You can find the freq. range in the manual at the link below:

Nice Radio though.

How do i get expanded freqs on my ft1802 yaesu tranceiver


The FT-1802 is a 50 watt 2 meter FM transceiver. It can transmit anywhere between 144 - 148 Mhz (the FM portion) of the 2 meter ham band. It can receive anywhere between 136 - 174 Mhz without any modifications. There is a modification to enable transmit "out of band" below:

http://www.ham.dmz.ro/yaesu/ft-1802-extended-transmit-modification.php

There are few details about the results of this mod - typically these provide for transmitting on frequencies outside (above, below or both) of the 2 meter ham band. Transmitting outside of the ham band without a proper license for the frequencies in the U.S. is a violation of FCC rules.

Hi, I´m about to buy second hand Furuno FS 1502, nobody has been able to tell me wether is does have a built in antenna tuner or not, also, the frequencies it really covers in TX. If you can help me that´d...


Wally,

No it does not have an internal antenna tuner. I presently own one and purchased it used. It covers all the marine bands. For more info on marine bands, do a search on the internet.

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.
