If the FT-736r has previously had a keyer module installed and then later 
removed, it's possible/probable that the jumper
that is cut during the installation has not been replaced/reconnected.

Refer to the keyer module installation instructions on page 17  of  the 
manual where it refers to "Cut the twisted jumper wire near P4001.

If the jumper is still cut, then the key jack is effectively disconnected 
from the transmitter keying circuit.
