Hello i have a yaesu ft-2900 it receives just fine but when i transmit it shows error. this radio is brandnew
When you say you used the software to download frequencies, do you mean as in from the internet, or did you have to input frequencies via the software on your PC?
There is a difference, that's the reason I ask.
If, by using the software you manually input the frequencies, then did you input both the output and input frequencies or just output for each channel?
If the latter is true, and you are trying to access another user via a repeater, then that is the error.
Repeaters generally, require both the input frequency = the frequency you transmit on, and the output = the frequency you receive on.
Without both frequency pair, you won't be getting out, and no won can hear you, as you are basically transmitting as a simplex station on a repeater allocatted channel, hence the error message on your display.
The radio you have is used by many amateurs & CB operators, and both group utilise repeaters within their allocated spectrum, excluding 27 meg CB, which is simplex only, but with SSB included.
I hope this answers your query.
