Re: yaesu FT208R handheld 2metre radio programming
1. Remove battery.
2. Look for memory switch in the upper right hand corner
3. Sswitch this switch to the off position this should erase any settings that may be stored in the radio.
4. wait five minutes then turn switch back on and replace battery.

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.
Firstly, are you a licensed Amateur Radio Operator, if not, you are breaking the law buy transmitting on that frequency. The Amateur 2 metre band, which covers 144 - 148MHz is for the use by Licensed Amateur Radio Operators ONLY.
You are free to listen to these frequencies, because you are a listener, and the radio is being used to receive ONLY.
But you CAN NOT transmit on these frequencies.
If you get caught, you will be charged under federal FCC laws governing the use/misuse of radio equipment and a heavy fine &/or imprisonment can be expected. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
If this is the earpiece that came with the radio & it states that vox is available for the radio, then Yes would be the answer to your query.
But if you are trying to use a yaesu VC-27 vox earpiece with another Make of radio, say - Icom, then no would be the answer, as each manufacturer, programs each radio/earpiece with vox to work only with their radios.
