Yaesu FT-11R amateur radio squelch problem

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..

SOURCE: Yaesu FT 11R

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.

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.

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.

Any ham radio store should be able to obtain these - if they are still in production / stock by Yaesu. Ham Radio Outlet aka "HRO" has stores nationwide and can ship direct.

I hope this helps!

FT-11r no longer powers up with a known fully charged battery ? The battery was left in the unit a couple of months with a discharged battery. Could this have damaged the unit ?


It's unlikely leaving the battery pack attached ruined the radio, unless it leaked and corroded the contacts. Be sure they're clean and bright. Double check to be sure the battery pack really is charged to rated voltage.
