Hi Van,
Regarding your question about type acceptance I did some quick
scanning on the interweb. The ARRL published a response recently.
Link below.

Essentially, in the Baofeng saga they are not type accepted. However,
they are legal for amateur radio use by licensed hams of course, which
is the position the League is stating in their news blurb here (the
link below).

It's an interesting story for sure with problems yet to be resolved
to everyone's satisfaction.

Re: Yaesu FT 847 Repair Question

Jon Cole
 

I also found out that I have a bad 2 foot long coax cable and my cheap SWR meter is better at being a simple power meter than it is as a SWR meter.  Difficulties lead to learning.

Jon, N0OFJ


Re: Yaesu FT 847 Repair Question

Jon Cole
 

Corey, KC0YNS, correctly identified my operator error in transmitting.  I had the RF Power knob down a little too far, the mic gain down a little too far and I was not loud enough into the microphone.  Shows you how often I work SSB and just because you have been licensed a long time doesn't mean you know how to operate properly.  I'm still struggling with my Anytone radio, too.  At least I know what direction to go in my (re-)learning.  :-)

I still need to change that memory battery, though.  Hopefully before it dies on its own.  :-)

And John, that repair information would be good for me to have for when I really do need it in the future.

Jon, N0OFJ


Re: Yaesu FT 847 Repair Question

Jon Cole
 

I bought a dummy load (good long term investment) and hooked up my radio to it in various configurations.  It transmits measurable power on HF (160m-10m) only in FM mode.  In all other modes (SSB, AM, CW) it is barely discernable on the needle.  All the modes work properly on 6m, 2m and 70cm.

While doing some reading, I am also due to replace the memory backup battery as well.

Hook a dummy load to the HF SO-239 and see if it heats up when you try to transmit in AM or CW.  Sorry, but I still have not found mine.

Hello all,

I discovered recently that my Yaesu FT 847 is not working properly on the HF bands.  On AM or SSB or CW it folds back to zero power output, but on FM it transmits the appropriate amount of power?  I know there are a few of these radios out there, so I'm wondering if anybody has any answers and/or contact information for a good repair facility.  I have not tried resetting the CPU / memory yet, but I will do that if needed.

Thanks.

Re: Mesh networking system

Rob Grimmett
 

Depending on which equipment the others have it could be a very simple setup.  Rpis have a decent ability to operate in the normal bands with hsmm-pi, and you can load all the software on each one.  You can link the asterisk servers for failover voice and teamtalk at the time of me writing this makes it hard to link multiple servers together, however that hasn't stopped me yet from doing things in a fashion they were never intended to.  Team talk give good voice and video over mesh as well as allowing a second route for internet in so think echoing for mesh almost.  I'm still working on a way to interconnect a mesh setup on a PC with an aredn node.  Once that happens, then so much can be done.   I look forward to watching and helping it grown as much as i can.  It's one of the things i miss from.back home.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
