RE: Yeasu 736-R Question



Hi Bob,

I have a FT736r and a VERY expensive UEK3000SAT, and I'm trying to be very
anal about protecting it. <g>

Here are the steps I'm taking:

1. STAY IN SAT MODE. While the downconverter is in SAT Mode, and you are set
up for Mode VU (2m Rx, 70cm Tx) your downconverter is safe. You can use any
position you want; none will xmit on the Rx band. (Tks Bruce KK5DO for
getting me to research that) This idea originated with Jerry K5OE, and has
proven as the best first step for safety.
2. While in monitoring mode, keep the Drive setting all the way down. Should
you somehow xmit on 2m, you are at minimum power.
3. With the downconverter not energized, power up the FT736. Next, power up
the downconverter.
4. When you are ready to shut down, de-energize the downconverter first,
then the FT736r.

Any suggestions from other 736 owners are appreciated. I will do a FAQ if we
get any more ideas.

Regards,
Steve Diggs, W4EPI

I know that this question has been asked before, but I don't remember seeing
the answer.

How can I disable the 2M TX section of my 736 to prevent blowing my Mode-S
downconverter?

I appreciate any help you can offer.
