Question about Vertex FNB-38, YAESU,FT-11R,FT-41R,FT-51R, 9.6v 650mAh NiCd 2-Way Radio
My Yaesu FT-11R amateur radio is having a problem with its squelch. When someone else is talking, even next to me with full signal, my squelch will not trip. The radio's squelch has levels 1-7. Levels 1-3 produce static, while 4-7 do not. In the past, 4 has been perfect. Now, I can't hear anything unless I drop the squelch down to level 3, where I hear static between others' transmissions.
This radio's current battery (Maha FNB-38) is a few years old and is not holding a charge very well, and the radio even exhibits this squelch behavior when it's sitting on the charger. A voltmeter showed 9 volts on two of the battery's terminals and 3 volts on the other two terminals. Could this be a battery issue? Thanks!
It sounds like perhaps you have CTCSS turned on so it's blocking received signals that aren't using sub-audible tones. Make sure the "TSQ" indicator is not showing. Most Yaesu radios have the SQU or "T.SQ" option easily found in their menu structure..
