Quick low power xmit?

 

On my Alinco DX-70 there is a H/L button to reduce the output power. I fins that super easy to use when I want to adjust the antenna and not use full power. I do not have the ATAS-100, so I wonder if there is a similar way to do that without going into the menu and changing the HF Power Output, then changing it back?

Be AWARE, the FT-100 mike PTT is NOT a "Direct closed connection" like most other radios! The FT-100 PTT line is OPEN during receive, as normal, but a RESISTANCE is switched across the line to TRANSMIT! If I remember correctly, a resistanc e of 22,000 ohms is needed. ( Try 27,000 ohms if 22,000 ohms dosen't work, it is one of these 2 values)- just take a wire off the PTT switch, and connect the resistor in series!  73, KC3VO, Bob Curry  ( call 301-439-3873 if you want to discuss.)

If it is only the PTT switch that is giving you the problem you can go into the switch and clean the contact but this only works so long.  Had the same problem last year and was able to order an replacement PTT switch from Yaesu without any problem.  I did find the switch on their web site but ending up calling and talking to one of their techs.  It only took around a week to arrive and if I remember correctly it was somewhere around $5.00.  I did post the cost and part number on this group but don't remember the date of the post.

If found the info that I posted before on the PTT switch.  

Yaseu Sales Support. MH-36b PTT Micro Switch: P/N N7090127 Description MICRO SWITH MQS-21U MH-42A6J Cost $1.50 EA.

If this is what you need I hope that it helps.

IIRC the microphone PTT isn't a short to ground but rather through a
resistor (22K?) as are the P1,P2 functions - that's how the rig sorts out
which button is pushed by the resistance.  That also assumes I'm reading the
schematic right: not an engineer or tech by training.

YKMV  Rig is up north snowed in so can't pull the mic and measure to verify.

I'm pretty sure its just the PTT switch in the mic that is bad.  If I can
get the radio to keyup... I can shake/wiggle the mic cord all over the
place and the radio stays keyed up.

So many months ago... I did open up the mic to see if I could spray
some contact cleaner into the switch... but that didn't really help any.

Also... back then when I had the mic open... I seen there were 3 screws
holding the board in the mic.  I took the 3 screws out... but I couldn't get
the board to come out.  There is a screw going thru the PTT switch case,
but don't know if that screw has to come out as well in order to get the
board out.

I may order a switch or two from Yaesu... and then see if I can find
someone locally that can replace the switch for me (unless once I get
the board out... it looks like something that I can do with my terrible
uplcose depth perception.

My ptt switch went bad and I tried to clean and fix it to no avail.
I got a new switch from YAESU and replaced it.
I then took the old switch apart to see what the problem was and saw that it apparently just wore out. The design is very odd.

eBay mic kind of works.... but no PTT...

 

Well the mic that I ordered on eBay from California arrived in the
mail today (pretty fast since I ordered it on Friday).
 
The mic connector has a "rubber boot" (a strain relief) and when
its plugged in... it makes putting the faceplate back on the front of
the radio very very hard.
 
When I turned my radio on... the first thing I checked was the PTT,
and it didn't key up the radio :-(  The "UP" button on the top of the
mic made the radio tune up in frequency... but the "DOWN" button
didn't make the radio tune down in Frequency.
 
The "P1" and "P2" buttons went thru the bands of the radio (just
like the P1 and P2 buttons on my mic).  The "ACC" and "P" buttons
seemed to go between the "Home" frequency for whatever band
you're on and the VFO (just like the ACC and P buttons on my

When you slide the "LAMP" switch on the side of the mic... the

replacement mic for FT-100/D...

 

I've been looking for a replacement mic for my FT-100 for awhile now.
When looking on eBay... I've seen MH-36AJ6J mics that are listed as
a replacement for the Ft-90, FT-8100, and other Yaesu radios. When
looking a the schematics for the MH-36A6J and MH-36B6J... you can
see they are wired differently.
 
I was just looking on eBay and I seen this mic listed...
 
 
Its listed as a replacement for the MH-36B6J and for the FT-100.
 
So... I ordered one of these.  I'll let the list know if this mic does in fact
work or not on my FT-100... incase there other people that are looking
for a  replacement/extra mic for their FT-100/D.
 
Not sure when I'll get it as its coming from California... and I'm all the
way across the country in Boston.

High SWR, no receive on HF

 

I recently had a friend help me fix a cracked solder joint on the speaker jack of my FT100. The fix worked like a charm. When we finished, we went onto 20m and there was absolutely no sound on SSB, AM, or CW but lots of static on FM. This is universal, all bands. Also on transmit I get the high SWR warning even though the SWR is low (I was transmitting on a tuned Buddipole).

The radio has the 6m SWR mod and the fan mod. I've searched for articles that might apply and offer some troubleshooting, but none so far. To perform the repair to the audio jack, we of course had to remove one of the main boards. When we reassembled it, we traced everything back and it all appears to be fine, but I'm wondering if there's something cross-connected (traced back means we had the schematics out and followed each circuit).

Has anyone seen something like this before? Any recommendations on where to start fixing it? Or does this just sound like it needs a trip to the "FT100 Repair Shop" (Burghardts)?

I'll throw this out there - this radio will be on QRZ for sale shortly, repaired or not. The radio is complete - including separation kit, mounting bracket, manual and original box. It was a backup rig for the previous owner. It was my mobile unit, then my base station, and then just sat in the box for several years II've owned it for 4 years, used it for maybe 1 in total). I'm willing to discount it the cost of a thorough going-over from Bughardts (I understand that's a couple hundred dollars), so I'll take reasonable offers for the complete kit, if anyone is i nterested.

Why selling? I've remarried and moved, and merging two families along with my job means I have limited time for radio. I've gone completely portable, am learning CW, and really only operate from the back porch or the backcountry. No sense in this rig sitting unused, and I need to "fund" a few purchases. With 3 kids in college, that means I have to sell something to buy something!

Thanks and 73's

My FT-100 draws 10 amp on RX

 

Hello all,
I hope someone here will be able to help me with my problem.
I was testing my FT100 on a dummy load (what an irony !!!) on the HF bands and suddenly the high SWR icon appeared.

I didn't realized at first what happened until I noticed my power supply ammeter showing about 10 amps on receive. The radio is getting very hot from the hf finals without transmiting !!!

As far as i can see (I disconnected it immediatelly form the supply) no smoke or burned components. Of course something must be burned but I cannot see it.

Can you help me where to start or does anyone know a good service center in Europe because I'm located in Greece ? 

Thanks in advance
Fanis, SV1BGM

    FT-100D - Perfect Condition - With Separation Kit

     

    Hello fellow FT-100 Group Members,

    I am the original owner of a Yaesu FT-100D in near perfect shape.

    Bought it brand new and the only time it has been open is when I sent it to the factory for updates when it was one year old. Factory recommended 6M false SWR indicator update & fan upgrade as well.

    No modifications or repairs have ever been done to it.  Works Great, Hate to part with it, love this rig, but it has to go.  I have rarely if ever run any of the power levels above 50%.

    It was mobile for a year, you can't tell, and used base since.  Rarely used, just too busy.
      The microphone and cord are perfect, I replaced the cord when taking it out of mobile service, so it is not stretched out or brittle at all, like most that are used mobile.

    Make sure to look up all of the extra options the "D" model came with if you do not know. Digital Signal Processing, filters and such.  The DSP and NB were invaluable when used mobile.

    The selling price is $650 with a YSK-100 Separation kit, which I bought used on Ebay.  That alone was $120, more than the retail value nowadays since they are so rare.  I have never taken the YS K-100 out of the box since I bought it used.

    I have the Owners manual and the non-documented features manual, as well as the original marketing flyer / spec sheet all 3 in PDF format which I will email you when you buy it.

    I have the original box, mobile mounting bracket & screws, as well as the schematics (paper copy).

    Worked awesome with Ham Radio deluxe with just 2 cables, no other hardware or adapters needed for most any digital mode or any of the transceiver control functions.  Like having a Software Defined Radio, with the FT-100D box as the transceiver deck.

    What else would you like to know ?

    How often will you find one of these that is in new perfect, like new condition, original owner (I am talking myself out of selling it), with a separation kit and at a reasonable price too ! ?

    SWR, no output

     

    Hi folks, hey... I dusted off my FT100 recently to get it ready to sell. Had to fix a cracked solder joint on the speaker jack. The fix worked like a charm.

    When we finished, we went onto 20m and there was absolutely no sound on SSB, AM, or CW but lots of static on FM. This is universal, all bands. Also on transmit I get the high SWR warning even though the SWR is low (I was on a tuned Buddipole).

    Does this sound familiar? Any recommendations on where to start fixing it?

    Thanks and 73's
