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.

Google RT Sytems Software and go to their website and purchase the programing software and it will come with a cable for your model of Yaesu radio and use your computer to program this handheld and be done with it. Only $49.95 and the best money you will ever spend. Programming handhelds from the keypad is a total waste of time. RT SYSTEMS SOFTWARE
it sounds like you loaded corrupt data into the memory registers or god forbid, let the magic smoke out of the CPU, and we all know with out the magic smoke it wont work anymore. disconnect the programming cable plug the mic back in and pull out the owners manual and look up how to do a factory reset, and perform one EXACTLY as instructed. if this doesn't fix the issue the radio is going to need service. You don't mention if you used a factory cable or after market programming cable. Ive never used Chirp software, so I cant comment on it, in fact, Ive never heard of it before and I run Yaesu equipment in my mobiles and for my handhelds.
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!!!

I am a marine electronics technician with 28 years experience. I have also been a licensed amateur radio operator for the past 12 years. Based on my professional experience with both brands (Icom and Yaesu), I have to advise you to go with one of the Icom units. The Yaesu is a good radio, but Icom's customer support is far superior. I have had no problems dealing with their service department over the years, something I can't say about Yaesu.
