I am a marine electronics technician with 28 years experience. I have also been a licensed amateur radio operator for the past 12 years. Based on my professional experience with both brands (Icom and Yaesu), I have to advise you to go with one of the Icom units. The Yaesu is a good radio, but Icom's customer support is far superior. I have had no problems dealing with their service department over the years, something I can't say about Yaesu.
Hope this helps.

to store a fcy press BAND to go to your fcy range ie 118.000 airband
dial your fcy ie 127.900(shanwick ocean area control) press and hold V/M for 1 sec, small numbers now blink, dial the memory slot you wish to store into ie 001 then press V/M again for 1sec and this will store 127.900 into mem slot 001. make a list:-
mem number / fcy / mode(am - fm) / station / bank
to prog a fcy into a "bank", press V/M for 1sec - blinking mem numbers - dial mem number ie 001(127.900) press MODE - "bank" flashes past-
-- -- -- -- 001 shows, turn dial to show A-00 this is the first "bank", pressing BAND scrolls through all the alpha "banks" - choose one.. ie A-00 (for airband..) press V/M this puts mem 001 into "bank" A mem slot 00, there are 100 slots in each letter 00 to 99. do this to any fcy you want to scan as a group.
to scan a bank press V/M - small numbers appear -
press BAND to scroll through any "banks" you have created ie A B C D etc (only banks with fcys in will display), press MODE -"bank"- press MODE again and you will start scanning just that "bank" of mem slots.
MODE starts and stops the scan... each letter holds 100 mem slots.. happy scanning!!!

Are you trying to connect the SCS PTC-IIpro to an Icom M710 (or M700pro) marine transceiver? If you do kindly refer on the information below:
The audio connections are the same as the PTC-II/IIe, the radio-control connection is specific to the IIpro.
PTC-IIpro Audio Icom M710 ACC(1)
(8-pin SCS DIN) (8-pin Icom DIN)
(Tx audio) Pin 1----(vio)-----Pin 4 (Mod)
(Rx audio) Pin 4----(grn)-----Pin 5 (AF out)
(PTT) Pin 3----(yel)-----Pin 3 (PTT in)
(Gnd) Pin 2----(wht)-----Pin 2 (ground)
(+12V) Pin 5----(blu)-----Pin 7 (12V out- see note)
1. The colors shown above are for the pigtail cable supplied with the PTC-IIpro. Check the colors with an ohmmeter, errors are possible.
2. The German-style DIN connector has a different physical pin geometry, and is not interchaneable with the US-style DIN connector used by Icom. Label the cable ends to avoid any confusion over which end goes where.
3. The PTC-IIpro has provision for an alternate 12V input on its HF audio connector. This provides a convenient way to connect power to the modem, but if the cable is particularly long then this could be a source of RF interference. Consider a separate power connection for long cables.
Remote frequency-control is optional, but highly recommended when a PTC-IIpro modem is used with an Icom M710/M700pro transceiver. There are two options for connecting remote control to the radio, the recommended connection is to use the M710's 9-pin "Remote" connector (supported from Airmail ver 3.0.857 onwards). As an alternative, the 1/8" mini-phone "Clone" jack can be used, see "option 2" below.
PTC-IIpro "Control" ICOM 710 "Remote"
(13-pin DIN) (DB-9P 9-pin male)
Pin 3 (yellow) -------- NMI+ 5
Pin 8 (red) ----------- NMO+ 7
Pin 13 (orange) ---+--- NMI- 6 (see note)
+--- GND 9
Shell ----(shield)----- Shell
Note: Add a jumper between pin 6 and 9 on the 9-pin connector, so that the (orange) ground wire connects to both pins. Also make sure that unused wires are carefully insulated, short-circuits can damage the radio or modem.
In order to use the NMEA interface, it must first be selected using the front-panel "Set Mode" functions (turn power on while holding down the "Func" and "1" buttons-- or "Ent" and "1" for the 700 pro). Select the "REMT-IF" (remote interface) setting and change it "d-Sub" (or "RS-232" on some models). Also check that the "REMT-ID" setting matches Airmail's "AIcom Addr" setting).
AirMail Options Settings:
Modem (TNC) connection:
Modem type: PTC-IIpro
Comm port: COM1 or as appropriate
Baud rate: 38400 or 57600
Show link messages: no check
Ignore CTS: no check
Center Frequency: 1500
Check "Marine (FSK dial=center)"
Amplitudes: as appropriate, start with 130/170
Check "Direct using PTC-II control port"
RS-232: Checked (this is important!)
Radio type: "Icom-M710" (select appropriate model)
Icom Addr (hex): 01 for M710, 02 for M700pro, or 03 for M710RT (must match radio's REMT-ID setting)
Dial offset: 00
Note: Entering the radio modes with the "Modes" button is no longer required.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

On powering on,while pushing [MONI] and [D•CLR],
push and hold [PWR] for 1 sec. to
reset the CPU.

Testimonial: "I tried that but it didnt work, im going to tell what has happened with me, before this error occured with me, i was pressing buttons and trying a lot of things like cloning and such stuff i turned the trancsiever of and when i turned it on it was transmitting by itself for a while, when it stoped transmitting i couldn't transmit any more even the tx sign isn't working, so what you think i should do. I appreciate that your helping me and thank you"
