Question about Icom Radio Communications
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.
Hope this helps.

to store a fcy press BAND to go to your fcy range ie 118.000 airband
dial your fcy ie 127.900(shanwick ocean area control) press and hold V/M for 1 sec, small numbers now blink, dial the memory slot you wish to store into ie 001 then press V/M again for 1sec and this will store 127.900 into mem slot 001. make a list:-
mem number / fcy / mode(am - fm) / station / bank
to prog a fcy into a "bank", press V/M for 1sec - blinking mem numbers - dial mem number ie 001(127.900) press MODE - "bank" flashes past-
-- -- -- -- 001 shows, turn dial to show A-00 this is the first "bank", pressing BAND scrolls through all the alpha "banks" - choose one.. ie A-00 (for airband..) press V/M this puts mem 001 into "bank" A mem slot 00, there are 100 slots in each letter 00 to 99. do this to any fcy you want to scan as a group.
to scan a bank press V/M - small numbers appear -
press BAND to scroll through any "banks" you have created ie A B C D etc (only banks with fcys in will display), press MODE -"bank"- press MODE again and you will start scanning just that "bank" of mem slots.
MODE starts and stops the scan... each letter holds 100 mem slots.. happy scanning!!!

Just check the PTT receive/trasmit switch for malfunctioning first. This switch comes at the HM 36 hand microphone. If this switch got defective this type of fault will occur. This switch have to be hold down to transmit signal. Check the UP and DOWN push switches also for any defect.
There is a HM-36 schematic diagram in your device's manual to compare this connections. Refer it. Other chances for this fault is rare. If you wants further assistance, feel free to contact me through fixya. OK.
