I need to delete a few memory inputs on my radio.  After following the instructions I can't seem to get the memory that I've selected to delete.  I am

1. entering memory mode
2. press set for 1/2 sec
3. select memory to delete
4. press scn on main band to delete memory

Then nothing is happening.  What am I doing wrong?

Your procedure looks correct.  The Yaesu FT-8800 and 8900 have multiple functions tied to a control depending on how long it is depressed.  Yaesu has instructions that say "momentarily press" and "press for 1/2 second" which yield different results.  Try it again and slightly alter the time you depress the [SET] button.

1.Press the [V/M] key, if needed, to enter the Memory mode.
2. Press and hold in the [SET] key for 1/2 second, then rotate the “Main” band DIAL knob to select the memory channel to be deleted. Note that memory channel #1 may not be deleted.
3. Press the “Main” band [SCN] key momentarily. The display will revert to memory chan- nel #1. If you rotate the “Main” band DIAL knob to the location you just “Masked,” you will observe that it is now invisible.


If all else fails, mask the memory using software to configure it.
