Author Topic: FD-100D 2 M Off-Frequency  (Read 2839 times)

I recently acquired a used Yaesu FT-100D Mobile transceiver. I have made several acceptable contacts on some HF bands. However working with local nets and local repeaters on 2 M, it appears that it transmits (and receives?) about 3kHz high form the shown dial frequency. This from reports of nearby contacts. Since FM dials in 5 Khz min. steps, I cannot adjust for it, as I am in the middle of the steps. I can compensate receive freq. by using the clarifier (RIT) ,which tunes in steps on 0.1 Khz.
Does anyone know how to correct this problem?
Thanks, Pim, K4PIM

Fairly common problem with that radio, especially on VHF and UHF...the reference oscillators tend to drift with time and temperature variations.  Has it been serviced (aligned) lately?  Check the Yahoo group here for lots more information.

Good Luck,

Click the link in my last post and it will take you to a Yahoo group for the FT-100D which is a gathering place for information exchange related to that particular radio.  You will have to ask to join the group in order to ask questions.

Thanks again, Stephen. I guessed I missed it the first time. I have joined and will check them.
