While transmissing 'E7" is displayed in vertex repeater. how to rectify this problem?Manual says it is PA Unit Problem.Pls tell me a solution for othis problem.


This error arises when the PA module draws abnormal current. I had this problem because of a bad solder joint in the harmonic filter that is located directly following the PA module. Because of that, the PA sees a mismatch on the output. The VSWR sensor will not detect this because it is placed AFTER the harmonic filter. In my repeater this harmonic filter was inside a shielded module that was really difficult to remove. After I removed it, it turned out one of the caps in the filter was not soldered properly. I am not saying this will be the case in your repeater, it could be another problem but for me this solved the error code issue.

Manuals for manuals for spirit su42 and are they programmable and can you update them ///???


Looked through our saved manuals and did not find one for the SU42. However, here is what we know about this model: It was factory programmed with two channels: Ch1 is 464.500 (Brown Dot) and Ch2 is 464.550 (Yellow Dot), both on 25k channel spacing. (This radio is not narrowband capable.) The radio also has 32 programmable PL Codes. You can see your PL Code by pressing down the PL button for 1 second. The code number will be displayed on the screen. Using a standard PL code charge you should be able to determine your code.
Best regards.

Looked and we do not have a manual for the SU42. This radio is not programmable and is not narrowband capable. It was produced with two channels: Ch1 454.500 (Brown Dot) and Ch2 464.550 (Yellow Dot). It also has 32 possible PL codes. You can see the current PL code by depressing the PL button for 1 second after turning on the radio.

I bought a new battery (FNB-RG-67LI) that arrived with 7.6 volts. I installed to the radio and conected to the ac outlet. After 12 hours charging is in 7.6 volts. my radio is the yeasu FT 60 with the...


That is about the nominal full-charge voltage on that battery pack. If the radio works, use it, let the battery run mostly down and recharge it. The FT-60 is a great radio, and mine shows between 7.4 and 7.8V with a fully charged battery, so yours is probably OK.

I bought a new battery (FNB-RG-67LI) that arrived with 7.5 volts. I installed to the radio and conected to the ac outlet. After 12 hours charging is in 7.6 volts.


That may be a decent nominal voltage for the first charge. Use the radio until the battery is low and then recharge for another 12-hour cycle. That battery pack is notorious for not taking a full charge first time it's charged up.

HT-1000 has low Tx audio and programmed PL doesn't


While there are some adjustments which can be made in the RSS, doing so would not necessarily solve your problem, as it may create another. These setting would require the radio to be adjusted by a service tech using a service monitor. Your PL problem may simply be a programming issue. Double check the PL setting in the radio, also check to see if it is to be inverted or standard PL. If your radio is Transmitting low to other units, you could also be mixing narrowband and wideband radios. If so, one will talk softly to the other, while the opposing radio will be very loud talking back (among other things). And one other simple thing to check when having Tx issues is the antenna. Be certain you are using the correct antenna, the antenna is free of dry cracks or damage; and the antenna is attached properly.

After checking all the above, if you do not solve the problem, contact your local dealer or service center.

Best regards.

HT 1000, MT1000, Radius P110 Tx problems


Sorry about taking so long to respond. These radios have worked properly in the past. They have increasingly become worse to the point they will not Tx. I have tried to com-cate with a good radio but unsucc. I'm thinking the Tx freq has been altered? Can one freq (Tx) be altered and not the other (Rx) or will both become altered?

Looking for tips /advise on installing a FL-100 filter in a IC-706MKII


Hi,

To my understanding, most optional/add-on IF filters are plug-in. For the Icom IC706MkII, it would have to be on the top circuit board. Top cover is held by 3 screws on top and 1 at each sides. After you have physical connected the filter, you need to inform the system the specific filter connected on powerup. This could be done in the "Initial Set-up Mode".

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
