  Please check the manufacture's panel attached on your IC-820D. If
there is "J Mark" (Alphabet "J" in the triangle) , it is un-extendable
TX over 146MHz because of Japanese regulation.
  In Japan, between 146-148MHz is used for police, fire or weather
telemetry service. In the old days there were many illegal guys who
tried to modify their 2m radio to extend over 146MHz, and it had became
social problem. Now all JA versioan V/UHF radio has "J-Mark" that means

  73 de Yoshi.
