SOURCE: Hello,I have four walkie talkie

Elio:
Your local Kenwood rep is correct for a couple of reasons:

1. The cost to modify your current radios to operate on the Italian band would be higher than the price of new radios.

2. Operating modified radios would be a violation of Italian laws.

SOURCE: My TH79A keypad does not

Hi.

It looks like the key panel is defective and must be replaced. Standing to your description the receiver is working. Here the biggest third party part seller. Call them and find out if the panel listed in parts includes the key pad.

Kenwood has no parts for old model. If Partstore does not have the spare, try Kenwood, or look for second hand parts on Ebay.

Regards.

Ginko.

My kenwood ts 700sp display stopped working. It don't change when I rotate the dial. Was working fine now it just stays on 144.000 Where should I look?


I had this happen on a Kenwood and this may be what has happened to you. Take your top and bottom covers off and then you will need to undo the front panel from the chassis so you can tilt it to be able to get to the main dial VFO encoder. You will need to remove the main tuning knob and then remove the encoder and take it apart. What happened in mine was the main encoding wheel which is a very thin round wheel with tons of small slots that break a light beam causing the frequency to change. My encoding wheel glue let the disk come off. The shaft turned but not the encoding wheel itself. Check this first. If you have a scope you could check to output pulse train of the encoder before taking it apart. No pulse train from the encoder could mean the disk encoder wheel is not moving. Good luck. Dennis

Getting started with the ICOM IC_R5


First set the squelch (gets rid of the hissing noise and allows the radio to scan)
to do this....

On the side are 2 buttons, the bottom one is monitor.
press and hold then look at the display,
turn the top dial until "AUTO" appears,

The squelch should now keep the radio quiet.

Now the tuning step..
You need to set this because if your radio was on 450.000 and you wanted to listen to 450.012.5 you would miss it if your radio was making 000.025 "steps". IE you would need 12.5 steps. This is the most common step used by ambulance etc in the UK, you will need to check local band plans.
Stick with 12.5 and you should get most stuff on VHF / UHF.
For airband 12.5 will get most stuff, but some is now changing to 8.33.
For HF (below) 136 Mhz I'd use 5

To set the step....

On the front there are 4 big buttons.
press [V/M.S.MW.SKIP] to select VFO mode,
then press [BAND.LOCK] to select the band you want to listen to,
then press [TS.SET] to enter the step
turn the dial to select your step (stick with 12.5 for now)
press [TS.SET] to exit back to VFO mode



To scan...

First set the scan type...
On the front there are 4 big buttons.
Press and hold the one that says [MODE.SCAN] for 2 seconds and look at the display,
turn the top dial until the screen reads ALL,
press [MODE.SCAN] again and the radio should start to scan with the 12.5 steps you set earlier.
If you want to change scan direction, just turn the top dial.
If you want to stop the scan, just press [MODE.SCAN].

When you hear something interesting, make a note of the frequency on the display.

To set memories (store frequencies).....

On the front there are 4 big buttons.
press [V/M.S.MW.SKIP] to select VFO mode,

to get close to the frequency you made a note of, press [BAND.LOCK]
Then set the actual frequency with the top dial,
press and hold [V/M.S.MW.SKIP] for 2 seconds to select memory write mode (1 short and 1 long beep)
turn the top dial to select which channel you would like to overwrite. Start with 01.
press [V/M.S.MW.SKIP] for 2 seconds. ( 3 beeps )

Thats it!

Any more problems just post on here and either me or someone else will help.

Problem with a Kenwood TS 2000 Amateur Radio Transceiver


73s I have heard of similar problems and some were heating related. the best is to check if your rig is heating up causing it to switch off and lose memory when switched back on. I have a buddy who had an unusual experience where he actually dropped frequencies so low that he could pick up ordinary radio frequency and also go into bands like 27mhz and 25mhz. But once switched off, the rig worked normal again. If you are experiencing heat problems then i suggest you put in a fan and remove all dust from inside the rig. You could probably also be having problems with power supply either internal or external. If all else fails, refer to a good repair shop this type of radios are very sensitive.
