Radio Shack has a pretty good search feature for old instructions on their website. You will need their part number off the unit, which will be something like "20-321". Do a search and you can get a PDF instruction manual for it online.

How to manage a long waiting queue in restaurant/clinic/service centre?


In Singapore, we noticed that many restaurant/clinic/service centre/etc usually forms a long queue either waiting for table or seeing a doctor or waiting to be served.

It seems that none of the owner are keen to look into a better system to resolve such unpleasant situation. In fact, you will notice that loss of business due to frustration queuing (esp. restaurant), angry customer (esp. service centre) and fear of contact (esp. clinic) in most cases.

Here is a great solution that I would like to introduce to have the above issue resolved. Check out the paging system by Blufi Wireless Singapore Pte Ltd, it helps to resolve most queuing challenge.

Your antenna should not make any difference with power or receiving. Is the scanner mobile or in a room? Hard to imagine the connector being broken. You could test the antenna or even the BNC connector on the scanner. Try another antenna. If you wiggle it, does it start receiving? You may have a short in the BNC to the receiver. Other than that, look to power issues.

It sound like your power supply is not providing enough output for the radio. Are you by chance using a wall wart for power? You need a dedicated 12 volt power supply, made by Astron, QJE, or Pyramid.

you may have a bad squelch pot on the radio. try turning it fully in one direction an back in the other direction. it also could be that the Pot is dirty get some contact cleaner and open up the radio and squirt a very little cleaner into the open spot of the Pot. then rotate the know several times. if you do not have something like CRC QD Contact Cleaner you can get it in a good hardwood store like ACE or TrueValue, and even Home Depot. you can use only 91-99% Electronic Grade Isopropyl Alcohol, do not use the 70% Isopropyl Alcohol.

you may have a broken wire in the radio itself? or there is a wire broken inside the mike itself not just the connector.

you need to program the correct frequency. the Marine Channel 63A is 156.175Mhz. they also maybe using a PL Tone or a CTCSS tone, you have to find out what it is. using the Chirp Programing software you can do that. but remember sometimes a Cities use a non standard CTCSS tone so you can only hear each other

try to do a Hard reset on the unit and then reload your freq list from Chirp. It happened to my UV-5R-v2 Baofeng. It worked fine after that.

I have the same issue for a long time. Can't find any information from the internet. Eventually, just tried to find in Japeness and find this manual.http://www.yaesu.com/jp/manuals/yaesu_m/...
Translate with google can understand how it works. Basically, power off the radio. Press the little button for 5 Sec while turning on the radio. This will reset all the paring on your BU-2.

Hi,

It's a two way communications radio, not a broadcast radio, hence it won't receive FM/AM broadcast radio stations.

You should not confuse the two as they work on different radio bands, most FM broadcast radios are on the 86-108MHz bands, whereas two way radios operate on the following bands:
1-86MHz, 108-174MHz, 220-520MHz & 865-920MHz

I don't know which band your radio works on, but not broadcast bands I'm sure.

The only exception to this is the smaller hand helds, which may have FM broadcast programmed, but if this is the case with yours, This issue is out of the realm of two way radio queries, as Broadcast radio is not two way radio, but one way radio, and I'm not competent enough to answer Broadcast radio issues.

Cheers, [email protected] Team

The usual cause is that the transmit button on the mike is broken or stuck in the "talk" position. If you disconnect the mike and the radio, then turn the radio on and it still is showing transmit, then the issue is inside the radio or the connector for the mike.
If the radio stays in receive mode with the mike disconnected, look at the mike connector for any bent pins or damage to the connector. If you don't see anything, try spraying electronic contact cleaner , the could be some corrosion that is causing a short here. Another thing, if you have it, is to use a different mike and see if that works properly.

Most headsets do not have a reset since there is nothing to reset. If you need to pair it again with a phone, go into the settings of the phone, find the bluetooth device list and tell the phone to forget the headset. then do the pairing again, after fully charging the headset.
