I suspect that the extended transmit will really allow you TX on 2 Meter from 136-174 or thereabouts even with modifications.

At any rate, Air Bands are amplitude modulated, have you tried switching mode to "AM" when operating 116-136MHz??

Would you post back please on how the modification (extended transmit) was done; software programming of the EEPROM or jumpers (JP1001-1009).

Good luck and kind regards.

I did the mod using the jumpers, opened up all vhf, uhf and hf. If you try to transmit on the airband freq in fm or am you get a TX Error so looks like it can't be done. I also need to TX on airband so looks like I will have to buy a HT

Wow, this guy is an idiot. If you are going to spend almost a grand on a radio why not just buy an air band (FCC approved) HT for about $300 bucks. Wish I knew where you use the radio, would be more than happy to send the FCC to visit you.

I cant talk on any frequency over 148.000 anyone know why?!

This is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. It will only transmit on the 2-meter Amateur band (144-148 MHz) but has expanded receiver coverage from 136-174 MHz which includes Public Service and Commercial 2-Way Radio bands. Please note that an Amateur License is required to operate on the 2-meter Amateur Band.

Any frequency over 148.000 i cant talk on, i can just listen. anyone know why?yaesuft1900r

The Yaesu FT1900R is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. Although the receiver covers from 136-174 MHz, will only transmit from 144-148 MHz. Please note that you do need an Amateur (Technician Class or above) License to transmit on the 2-meter Amateur Band. You no longer need to pass a Morse Code test to get an Amateur License. You still have to pass a written exam, but that isn't difficult if you are willing to study a bit. Contact your local Ham Radio Club or the American Radio Relay League (A.R.R.L.) for more information.

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:

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 have a FT-8900 and want to be able to open the AM side so I can use it on frequency 26.805 is there anyway it can be done

The Yaesu FT-8900 is a quad band FM transceiver only. It can not be modified to receive or transmit AM, SSB, RTTY or CW. It works on all or portions of 70 centimeter, 2 meter, 6 meter and 10 meter bands. The 26.805 Mhz frequency is 11 meters, so it is out of range of the 10 meter band in the radio, it is close. Even if able expand the transceiver, the AM / SSB mode commonly found in this band makes it impossible to use. Further, the radio is not FCC Type Accepted for use in this band.

PPT works in the lower bands (under 148 Mhz) but not 156 range

Your radio has not been modified to transmit outside of the amateur bands.

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.

Commercial radio model


A Kenwood TM-271A is an amateur radio and therefore restricted to transmit only from 144 - 148 MHz but can receive from 136 to 174.

The TX restriction is done with a resistor (R119) which inhibits transmission outside of the 144-148 band. It is located very near a large IC (IC252).

Depending on your country's radio communications policies and/or your radio license privileges, simply removing R119 would allow transmission outside of the 144-148 MHz.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should yuo need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
