FT-100 and Separation kit for sale

 

Hi,


Decided it's finally time to sell of my radio stuff as I'm not using it any more.  I decided to put my FT100 on ebay as I have no idea what it's worth.  Even though it's a few years old it's got to be one of the best mobile all band radios ever made.


Thanks to everyone on the list for their advice over the years, this has been a fantastic resource during the time I owned the radio. =)

micro switches for FT-100 mic...

 

Well... I called Yaesu today because I had to order a screw for the
battery release knob for my old FT-51R.  The screw was 3 cents.
So Instead of paying who knows how much to ship the 3 cent piart,
I had them add it to my order of 3 micro switches for the FT-100's
mic.
 
Now in early Feb... I was told the switches out of stock... but they
were on order and they would be in stock in about 4-6 weeks.  Since
that was about 7 weeks ago... I asked about the switches.  The person
that I spoke to said the switches are "in transit" and that the switches
should arrive "hopefully in a week or two".
 
I guess the switches are taking a very slow boat... from Japan.
 
I figured I would post an update to this group about the switches... as
I know at least 1 other person on here ordered some of these switches,
maybe more than 1 other person on here ordered some.

Where have all the files gone?????

 


I am looking for Bob's (KC3VO) photos on replacing the FT-100 V/UHF final with the MRF1570.  However, there seems to be no files for the FT-100 group on Yahoo any more.  Where did they go??????

PO =1% but power output is full power

 

Hi all,

Am sure i programmed PO output for HF power on my FT100D to just 1% but output when switching PTT shows full power on the display. Why? Any help would be appreciated.

73ees,

Off-Frequency on 2M

 

I recently acquired a used FT-100D. The HF SSB  works fine and I have had a number of DX QSOs, but on 2M FM the frequency  shifts up about 2-3 KHz from the scale reading when transmitting (full power, 50W). I had the freq. alignment checked, and it appears OK. It was noted that the frequency shift diminishes or disappears when reducing transmit power. At 25% power (12.5 W) the 2 M FM  transmit frequency shift  is minimal and and I received 59 reports. The open circuit voltage is about 13.2V (battery on continuous charger). When transmitting on full power, both HF and 2M FM, the voltage drops a couple of volts. PS line is 10 feet of AWG #14.with 25 A automotive fuses.
Does anyone have any ideas of what causes this freq. shift and how it can be fixed?
Than ks, Pim, DE K4PIM

File - FT100 Group Guidelines.txt

 


The FT100 Group averages around 150-200 messages per month.
Because the volume of messages is rather large, I would
like to remind everyone of a few long-standing FT100
guidelines to follow. Most of you do so already.

Look at the home page for the FT100 Group for links to the
FAQ, Knowledge Base, and Manuals for the FT-100/D.

1. Civility. (This is practiced well by our members!)

2. Please sign your messages with name and call sign, e.g.,
Fred - W1XYZ.

3. When replying to a posting (message), kindly delete all
unnecessary text including the trailing text. Only leave the text
from the prior message to which you are replying ... <snip> the
rest. If one desires to read the entire thread, the command [Up
Thread] at the top of the message can be used to read the entire
discussion. Remember also that a lot of members have slow
connections and some even pay connect time or characters rx/tx. This
also helps the clarity of your message.

4. When replying to a post, please decide if your comment should be
to the entire group of over 3,000 or directly to the author of the
post. When you click on "Reply," it goes to everyone. To reply
direct (simplex), you should click on the email address following the
user ID line at the top of the post. Notice that only a part is
shown for privacy. Also, please think about if what you are about to
post in reply to the group really should be to the group ... replies
like "I sure do agree with that" doesn't add much to the group. Send
thoughts like those direct to the poster please.

5. It is fine for members to post something for sale or wanted to
buy ... once per item(s). All questions and offers to buy/sell
should be made directly to the poster, not to the Group. The member
posting the FS or WTB may post that the item(s) was/were
sold/purchased.

6. Posting of commercial items for sale by manufacturers or dealers
is also fine, but should be done on an infrequent basis. The FT100
members benefit by learning of hardware, software, sales, etc. before
it appears in magazines, etc.

7. New members are all moderated until their first posting. If it
follows the guidelines, it is approved and the member is change to
unmoderated status. This list is a partially moderated list, i.e.,
only first message is moderated while later messages are monitored
after posting. If an unmoderated posting is found by the moderators
to have a problem, then the poster is contacted directly to resolve.
Actions are taken against those that chronically violate the rules.
The reason for this form of moderation is to block spammers from the
list and it has been working.

8. Do not add disclaimers to your posts that (1) restrict the ability
of other members to use the information you post, (2) claim a copyright
to your post, or (3) to claim any type of "rights" as a consequence of
another member replying to you post either directly to you or to the group.

Thanks to all es 73,
Barry - W4WB

ATAS100

 

The FT100 manual says to ground the ATAS 100 well for good performance.  I was wondering how you guys that use one do that.  I know that if you drill a hole in the car and put a mount in that it will be grounded but what about if you want to use it as a portable antenna not on a car.  I had my ATAS100 on a mag mount on top of a van for several years and I used to work DX with it routinely.  I was amazed at how well that antenna got out.  I am using a FT100 radio by the way.

New FT-100D owner

 

Hi,
I have to say that I am really impressed with this little unit. The sensitivity and clarity are quite good. A bit of a pain to manually program in all the memory channels, but not to bad. Have a LDG YT-100 on order, can't wait to try it out . If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them.

Re: [FT100] Mike PTT-(Troubleshooting)

 

Hi Steve 

I called Yaesu and they told me the mics were no longer available. If you receive your switches and that fixes the problem,  I would very much like to purchase one from you.

Fortunately I ordered 3, I'll have NOS for the next time I have an issue or to help out another ham when needed!  I hope they come in soon, I'd like to get the problem fixed.

I contacted Yaesu via phone yesterday and ordered the switch.  Yes, they do still make them and I was told they have no confirmation on their end from the manufacturer but the parts are expected to be in in 4-6 weeks.
I figured my switch is bad because when I key up and rock my thumb on the ptt, it intermittently keys and un-keys.

OK, if the mike is for the FT-100, possibly the trouble is NOT the mike? Try opening the mike, and connect a clip lead repeatedly across the PTT switch, then see if doing so reliably activates PTT, and perform this test on BOTH mikes to be sure! If PTT works normally with the switch contact shorted by the clip lead, but is intermittent or otherwise abnormal when activating the switch physically, the switch is the problem, otherwise, it is a RADIO problem! (The resistor is NOT within the switch, it is elsewhere, within the mike housing)-I hope this helps determine what is REALLY wrong.-73, KC3VO, Bob Curry

> N1EVH--You can change mikes and switches until you are "blue in the face", but the front panel mike connectors PTT circuit of the FT-100 will NOT operate properly, unless there is an added resistor, in SERIES with the switch contact, of about 27,000 ohms! (22 K might work)-A perfectly GOOD mike, that does NOT have this series resistor, will NOT properly activate the FT-100 PTT circuit, although this mike may work PERFECTLY on other, non FT-100 type radios! Open the E-Bay mike, disconnect one side of the PTT switch, and add a small 27,000 ohm resistor in series, THEN try it! 73, KC3VO, Bob Curry
