Re: voltage ft-1500m

Sorry if that was unclear. If I have the truck running, then press the power button to turn on the radio (ft-1500m), For a moment (a second or two) the screen on the radio shows the amount of voltage it is receiving at that moment. Usually around 13.1 to 13.4. Sounds to me from what your saying is ...

Re: voltage ft-1500m

I guess that must be it. The radio shows the voltage going to the radio when you first turn it on an shows only about 13.1-13.4. Must be shuting down when the voltage is to low. Anybody know a way to boost the power going to the radio? maybe a higher voltage alternator? I am not sure what you mean ...

Re: voltage ft-1500m

Most two way radios operate at optimum @ a steady 13.8VDC, this is most critical during transmit. Have you measured the battery voltage while transmitting on the radio at full power? How old is the battery in your truck? Perhaps it is starting to fail and this is the first sign of that or perhaps th...

Re: ICOM IC735 Blowing Fuse.

Referencing page 6-4 in the service manual of the PA schematic diagram. P5 HV line is actually a 13.8V source. P3 also has a 13.8V line clearly marked. Unplug them and isolate the circuits and check each circuit for a short to ground with a ohm meter. If either of them have a short to ground you wil...

Re: ICOM IC735 Blowing Fuse.

What 3 amp fuse are you referring to? Where is this fuse located and do you have a schematic diagram? Could be an internally shorted capacitor. Go to IC10 on the PL Unit and check pin 8 to ground. If there is a short it could be C18 or C247. Same procedure for all of the boards - check the 13.8V lin...

Re: TM-742A WON'T HOLD MEMORY

Old post I know but thought i would just answer it in case anyone else needs to know. The 641/642/741/742/941/942 series use the same lithium back up battery. The Kenwood "East Coast Parts" part number = W09-0573-05 and this battery if it falls close to 3.0 V is just about exhausted and should be re...

Re: Bat Board

No, nothing is different from the one that was always at batboard.batlabs.com. It must be that they blocked the entire dreamhosters.com domain without understanding that there are lots of *.dreamhosters.com sites out there.

Does this new board have advertising? It must because I get "it contains content belonging to the category of: Spam "
this "blocked" message at work from our Barracuda IT web filter. Seems its being blocked due to some advertisements
and I have now way to over ride it.

I cant explain in detail but I can tell you they are totally different. DStar is an amateur radio digital interface for voice and data developed by JARL over in Japan. IDAS & NXDN were developed by Icom & Kenwood respectively and were developed for commercial useage as narrow band digital (12.5Khz a...

Re: Possible?: Mot RIB to Ericsson RIB

Is it possible to convert a Mot RIB to replace the GE/Ericsson TQ3310 or TQ3370? Thanks. I do not remember where I saw it but I have seen reference to an add on adapter for the TQ3370 to make it emulate a standard moto rib(not the smart rib), so it must be possible to go the other way but i have no...
