    I'm having the same problem for transmitting or receiving. It started to happen some days ago, and I'm thinking that something serious might happened. About the frequency, its possible to open it, and you would be able to transmit/receive up to 655 MHz!

    This I found in a website:

    RX-TX expanded range for YAESU FT26 handheld.

    Make FT26 open and locate straps 1 to 8 on the "CONTROL UNIT". Now you
    must close the following straps : 1, 3, 5, 7, 8. Close your FT26 and turn the
    power on while keeping at the same time the "TONE" and "REV" depressed.

    Now you need reprogramming low and high frequency edge :

    When "1" is blinking enter RX lowedge and then push "D/MR"
    ....."2"...................RX high.................."D/MR"
    ....."3"...................TX low..................."D/MR"
    ....."4"...................TX high.................."D/MR"

    You can reprogram your "ARS" like in the OPERATING MANUAL page 21.
    My choice was 136 to 180 MHZ in RX-TX and it work very good!

    F1LOU @ ON7RC
    Note: I haven't tried or verified this, proceed at your own risk. And
    do not transmit outside of legal bands!

I've tried this and it's not working for my radio at least.

I did the soldering straps : 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 (strap 9 and 10 are also soldered from before)
Turned it on holding D/MR + T + REV for full reset (or T + REV for partial reset)
Then turned off and back on holding both MT and MHz to open up the freq range.
Turned off againand back on holding RPT/SET to set the ARS range, but it only give me 1 and 2
CH.1 135.000 Press [D/MR] Lower Rx limit
CH.2 174.000 Press [D/MR] Upper Rx limit

So I can't set
CH.3 135.000 Press [D/MR] Lower Tx limit
CH.4 174.000 Press [D/MR] Upper Tx limit

No idea why realy.

Some sites suggest remove solder on jumper pad 10, and not soldering jumper nr 5, as far as I can tell this is wrong.
But I'm not entirely sure.
I've tried either way and none work, but without jumper 5 I couldn't enter TX RX setting by holding RPT/SET and turning on.

Any suggestions out there?

VHF/UHF RF Power falls to Zero when the Auto ATU tunr logo is on the display. When the tunr logo is off the VHF/UHF RF power is only 10 watts on 2M and 3 watts on 70cms. The Yaesu FT 857 D should have no...

Check for open or shorted Veractor diodes and steering diodes there may be no direct interaction as you say but if a diode is open or shorted the RF circuits might still be selected for the higher bands and the lower output power on your vhf/uhf is an indication of this.

Ft 2900r yaesu all i see on the screen is B0001 i can't see the frequency

Try powering the unit up while holding the Set/MHz button. I did that and it restored the display (and the rest of the radio's operation) back to normal.

The character codes are test-mode displays that correspond to frequencies (in MHz):

A0001-A0640 - 136.000-143.9875 in 12.5 KHz steps B0001-B0400 - 144.000-147.990 in 10.0 KHz steps
C0001-C2081 - 148.000-174.000 in 12.5 KHz steps

I haven't the foggiest idea why this isn't in the manual somewhere, or at least flipped back to normal by a two-key or three-key reset. 73, k2mct

Try "Batteries Plus" either online or possibly a local outlet. I found the batteries for my FT51 there and half the price of the factory ones.

I have a FT-8900 and want to be able to open the AM side so I can use it on frequency 26.805 is there anyway it can be done

The Yaesu FT-8900 is a quad band FM transceiver only. It can not be modified to receive or transmit AM, SSB, RTTY or CW. It works on all or portions of 70 centimeter, 2 meter, 6 meter and 10 meter bands. The 26.805 Mhz frequency is 11 meters, so it is out of range of the 10 meter band in the radio, it is close. Even if able expand the transceiver, the AM / SSB mode commonly found in this band makes it impossible to use. Further, the radio is not FCC Type Accepted for use in this band.

I need to replace the internal lithium battery on a yaesu FT-416 - how do I do this?

I have a Yaesu FT-415 and the same problem. My original battery is a SONY 1220-VJ2H (solder tabs, blue insulation on the outer edge and two stick-on paper insulaters) and is soldered in to the Control PC board (mounted vertically). I'm going to get a new battery and hopefully am brave enough to get the soldering iron to the board. It looks like you have to unsolder the board from the speaker to lift it up enough to get at the solder tabs on the battery, luckily I have access to a Pace soldering station with a vacuum pump. I'll hopefully try this next week and get back to you all.

PPT works in the lower bands (under 148 Mhz) but not 156 range

Your radio has not been modified to transmit outside of the amateur bands.

Double check that "TSQ" is not enabled. In the menus you can fine "SQL" and select the type of squelch. If you have "TSQ" selected you'll only hear signals from radios that a re transmitting the CTCSS tone selected.
