Ray marine has an extensive library on-line. I have usually been able to find what I need there. May take some digging though.

The main cause for lack of reception or transmit distance is the PL259 connector on the antenna coax that plugs into the back of the VHF. Check to make sure this connector is a high quality, marine grade connector. If it screws on and the coax shield is not soldered to the connector I recommend replacing the connector and soldering it. If the problem still exists I would try a different antenna to see if this is the problem. It is possible that the radio itself has a problem, but check these other issues first. Raymarine has a 3 year warranty on their VHFs so you could send it back for a no charge repair if the antenna doesn't solve your problem.

Good luck!

Yaesu 270 not transmitting nor receiving


Hi this can be down to many reasons, radio keypad locked, receive on tone squelch, set on "Relay" or "Repeater", or even radio failure. Without the radio I cannot help, but that may give you some ideas.

I can't get my ntl twr500 2 way radios to conect to each other


Do you hear anything on one unit when transmitting on the other?
If you do, it will show that the unit is transmitting.
One or both might be set on the wrong channel.
Check both units this way/ Check each to see if they are receiving any signal when the other transmits. Hope it helps.

I would guess you have a PL set on the receive side, and not on the Transmit side. So the audio is being blocked by the PL (as it is supposed to be!) Check your programming, make sure you have the same PL on tx and rx.

If this is a new install, it is likely noise from the vehicles electrical system scrambling the processor of the radio. Put a filter on the power leads and check your install.

Navman VHF 7100 Radio neither receiving nor transmitting


I would suggest checking your antenna/coax connector. I am not sure what kind of antenna or ,mount you are using but I would suspect it being something in the antenna. Most radios are designed to not transmit if the antenna is broke or not connected at all. When you say bent do you mean metal bent or bent at the base? So that would be where I start. Can you try a different antenna? Hope you track it down. N5ARK

You may have a sub-channel/privacy channel activated. Unless the person/s you are trying to talk to have the same channel and code set they will not be able to hear you. Check your manual for specific instructions on how to reset it to the default.
