156.700 does not seem to have power limits. This is for the USA?
I think you can do it legally. Without opening up the software, there is a good chance.

Hi....

if you go to the FCC website and look up the FRS/GMRS info you will find a listing to links that can show you the frequiences for the two radio services...or you can look up Midland model GXT900/950 /series radios and in their specifications gives a frequency chart. the link is WWW.midlandradio.com

SOURCE: memory program ch no# on icom u or h16

I had the same problem. I solved it by going into program mode, then while holding down the function key, input one of the missing channel numbers. The channel should appear but is flashing. Now input a frequency for the channel and exit program mode. Repeat the sequence for the other missing channels. This procedure worked for me. Good luck.

SOURCE: ICOM IC-F21 (400-430MHz): Programming problem

When programming the radios the green light will flash when uploading or downloading data. The red light flashes when the battery is low. Maybe they are happening at the same time. As for the error message I would need to know what it said. Carl

Radio not receiving on any channel


Hi Mike,

The manual for this radio (in Adobe .pdf format) is available for download directly from Icom America, free of charges.

Since the "AquaQuake" function works and you do hear static when the squelch is off, that is sufficient to let us know that the voice coil of the speaker is functional and should produce sounds with the right signal applied.

The first thing to determine is if you're close enough to another operating transmitter for the radio to receive a signal. One of the 10 weather channels the radio is capable of tuning should be close enough produce some intelligible audio from the speaker - assuming the squelch setting isn't set too high.

If a WX channel works, then you'll need to see if there's a VHF Marine band transmitter operating nearby. You might need to set another Marine band radio receiver up to verify that there is indeed a signal present on the particular Marine band channel that you're monitoring. A list of frequencies is published on pg 27 (of the manual linked above) in case you need to convert between channel and frequency to tune on a non-channelized radio.

Outside of that, there's little the end user can do without specialized test equipment, schematics and of course, training. Many shops will be happy to provide an estimate for repair when provided with a small bench diagnostic fee. This fee is usually applied towards an authorized repair by most reputable repair shops.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Ihave an old icom icm- 55 marine radio what ariel do i need and do i need to swr the ariel will a cb ariel work basically what do i need to do to get it working


All marine VHF radios must be licensed. A marine radio station must also have a call-sign allocated to the vessel it is installed in. Shore based stations can also be licensed but only where they are involved in marine based activities e.g Yacht Clubs, Marinas, Harbour Masters, Rescue Services etc.
In the UK ships radio licences can be obtained from Ofcom. They are free for non-commercial users.
The user must also have a Marine VHF Radio operators certificate. This requires taking an exam. In the UK contact the Royal Yachting Association for a copy of the syllabus and local examiners.
More information about the licensing rules, courses and exams can be found here. http://www.rya.org.uk/infoadvice/regssafety/Pages/licensingelec.aspx
The ICOM ICM55 is a good radio set and can still be used in an existing (marine) installation but it does not meet the standards for new installations as it does not have DSC (digital selective calling) capabilities - which all new fixed sets must now have. It is therefore very unlikely that you will be able to get a licence to install one.
To get it working you will need a proper marine band VHF aerial which operates in the frequency range 156-MHz. They usually come with cable attached but if a longer cable is needed, or the aerial is not cabled in the first place, use flexible 75 ohm co-axial cable with a copper core and braid/foil screen. Use proper aerial connectors (type F or BC are most commonly used and can be obtained from most good electronic component suppliers more cheaply than from a boat chandlers. Do not use push-fit TV aerial plugs)
Citizens Band radio works on the much lower frequency MHz band and therefore a CB aerial will not work with a marine VHF radio set. Please see this Wikipedia article for more information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_VHF_radio

On the ICOM M604 will not receive the weather channels, will receive other close radio's.


Hi!

This is almost ALWAYS caused by a problem (a short OR an open) in the coax cable from the VHF radio to the antenna. An easy way to check is to JUST insert the PL-259 connector into the socket of the radio, making sure that ONLY the center pin is making contact with the socket. If the weather channels come in clearly, then it's usually an easy fix. Simply check the connections at each end of the coax, looking for a poor center pin solder connection or perhaps a bit of the ground braid is shorting out the center lead. A magnifying glass is a great tool to spot problems.

If the coax proves NOT to be the problem, then the fault is likely to be in the radio itself and is probably a bad solder connection where the antenna chassis mount attaches to the PC board.

Hope this is helpful.
Good Luck!

Sound like you have an antenna issue. Try a different antenna with coax. If the problem is still there, than you have a problem with the radio. Icom makes really good marine radios but you could have a defective one.

What's the channel frequencies for a common 22 channel motorola 2 way vhf radio?


Not sure what you want.....VHF band ius approximatly 130mhz to 175 mhz..... in that VHF band there is a commercial VHF band aprox. 155 mhz to 175...... the amateur radio vhf band is aprox. 135 to 150mhz.

 

With amateur radio, any freq in that range can be used...... with commercial radio the FCC cangive a company any freq. in that range also.

 

If you are looking for FRS/GMRS frequencies they are UHF freqs not VHF.

So I'm not sure exactly what you want......sounds like you might want to program in FRS freqs into an Icom amateur radio. If thats  the case you will need an Icom that will do UHF freqs.
