Dual Tone Radios - Radios that can use different tones for encode and decode for the same memory channel.
Commercial radios have long been able to use one CTCSS frequency for tone encode (to the repeater) and a different one for tone decode (for the radio). This functionality adds flexibility for repeater
Memory Channel selection from the microphone

The FT-8900 has a problem accessing memory channels when the channel number is entered from the microphone. Channels 256 - 299 cannot be accessed Channels  512-599 will return channels
Memory Channels on JT-220
In general radios do not care if you leave blank memory channels. The radio will skip over a blank channel when turning through them. This makes it possible to organize your work on the spreadsheet o
IC-7300 Memory Channels

To change between memory channels on the IC-7300, first touch the VFO/Memory Icon on the right of the screen. When the window opens, select Memory. The Icon will change to MEMO when you are in memory
FT-991 Using the Multi Knob for Changing between Memory Channels
So, you have programmed the radio with the memory channel information you want. Now you want to access that information.... Not so easily done on the FT-991 or FT-991A. Follow these steps for the f
D-Star Calculator in ID-800 Programmers
The RT Systems Programmer for the ID-800 has limited use of the D-Star calculator. When you click Apply in the calculator, the frequency will be entered but the callsign information will not be compl
Name/Frequency display
While operating on a memory channel with a name display, pressing the main tuning knob (on left) will display the frequency for the channel. Press the knob again to return to the name display. BE
FM Narrow
As the airways become increasingly busy, requirements for narrow band operations have been implemented for many activities. These requirements involve output deviation and frequency step of the radio
Banks on the IC-92 - Accessing after programming
Once programming is complete, power the radio off and back on to return to normal mode. Press [MR] repeatedly to enter memory bank mode.... this is the tricky part of the process. You know you're

Read Radio First
The RT Systems programmers require that you "read radio first" before you can send data to your radio. This process is necessary for several reasons. There are details about the radio that mu

Use of D710 head with TM-V71

If you plan to use the head from the TM-D710 for the TM-V71 radio you will need the RT Systems programmers for the TM-D710 to use with that combination. Once the head is changed, the radio takes
MS Error when scanning Yaesu Radios with Banks

In a recent report from a customer, they stated when trying to scan a certain bank in their VX-8G, the radio would display "MS Error". Scanning appeared to work fine in Bank 2, but not Bank 1.
Narrow/Wide's all relative

There are two parts to this... frequencies and modulation. Frequencies : The new commercial frequencies and those assigned to Mars/Caps operations are on 2.5 kHz steps. i.e., 147.2125, 154
Radio buttons not working

The IC-V8 and IC-V82, each have a channel number mode that not only displays Ch #, but renders many functions of the radio unaccessible from the radio's face.   In this mode, it will appear
Memory Banks

Band A and Band B 2M/440Mhz Separation

All memory channels are a part of Band A AND Band B.  There is not a Band A set of memories and a Band B set of memories.  However, the radio can be made to hide selected bands making
Memory channels of the radio can be organized into 5 different banks by entering channel details on the Bank A, B, C, D or E tab in the programmer. Each of these can accommodate 99 memory channels
