FT 209 R /FT 209 RH Modification

It is possible to activate any 10 MHz segment between 130 and 160 MHz on the
FT 209 Handy from Yaesu. First you have to solder in the bridge 7 on the
control unit board ( pcb with the keypad ). Now after a reset the display 
shows you "0000" with the first digt flashing and you have to enter
the receiving low, receiving high, transmitting low and transmitting high
frequency (only the first 4 digits !). For example :
If you wish a receiving segment from 142.500 to 151.800 and a transmitting
segment from 144.000 to 146.000 MHz you must enter the follwing after the
reset :

       1 4 2 5  D
       1 5 1 8  D
       1 4 4 0  D
       1 4 6 0  D

Finaly you must programm the repeater shift. The shift is  n o t  set to
600 kHz. Enter  0 6 0 0 F shift. That's all !
	
The PLL locks only between 138 - 152 MHz successfully and transmitter 
works only between 140 - 149 MHz. If you want to use other frequencies
you must realigment the rig.
