Modifications for the Yaesu FT-2500
FT-2500 freq. expansion
Hi, and thanks for reading this!
The Yaesu FT2500 is the easiest radio to mod to receive AND transmit out of
band! All you need to do, is to remove the top cover (5 screws) and cut a loop
of green wire! Instant tx/rx from 140 MHz to 179 MHz.
Is this TOO easy? I think it is. This information was obtained via 2 different
ham radio shops AND Yaesu (U.K.) Ltd. All three gave me OFFICIAL Yaesu faxs'.
Right now, there are idiots who WILL transmit on the police bands. All it will
take is a FT2500, a phillips screwdriver and a pair of wire cutters! Who knows,
it may be you who needs police help.
Have the manufacturers made it TOO easy to transmit out of band? I would like
to hear what you think.
Info from Kevin Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org
Being able to transmit out of band is dangerous for the radio. The finals are way out of tune once out of the 2 meter band and can result in damage to the rig.
Hi, Regarding the mod info on the Yaesu FT-2500 2400 2600. These radios
were designed with 3 stage Advanced Track Tuning
which allows the radios to work at full power evenly across its entire
range 140-174Mhz. The radio retunes itself as it goes resulting in no
burned out finals excellent intermod rejection and full output accross
the entire band. I thought I would drop you a line and put this debate
