Re: Question about interaction between separate rigs...

Jim, Al, Domenico --

Thanks all, for your suggestions.  I've been taking a hard look at the schematics for my FT-290RII; I don't have one for the -790, unfortunately.  So far, I've not been able to determine from the set I do have what the IF freqs are for the 2M receive function.

I'm going to go home this evening and try plugging the hole drilled into the case by the -790RII's previous owner by putting in a sheet metal screw to rule out compromised shielding as a cause.

What I can't figure out is if the problem is related to the IFs present in the radios, why would Yaesu design two radios obviously meant to be in close proximity (the -690RII, -290RII and -790RII models are siblings) with such potential problems?  It makes me think that there is a fault somewhere, that the issue isn't natural.

My feedlines are identical for the two rigs: 6' sections of what I think is mini-8 or RG-58 from Cable Experts with BNCs on both ends.  Could the lengths be causing this trouble?

However this all turns out, thanks for the advice.
