    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!

    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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yaesu FT 11R


figured out how to solve this, with the radio off, push and hold both up and down scan buttons, while powering the radio on. This will fix the problem.
