  1. Hello Mr Simon, first I would like to say thank you for taking the time to not only investigate but also for posting all the informative documents put up. I’m sure it takes time and lots of effort so thank you from the USA. So I know this is a USA sold radio but the Stryker sr-447hpc2 has little little info online other than the conversion for 11 meters. Can you point me in the direction to find the correct internal vr’s for AM low/high carrier settings and Am modulation? I’ve had little in finding those correct vr’s. Thank you in advance and good work on all that you share


    • Hi Ed. I’m told on the board it says AMPWRL and AMPWRH for the power? And AMMOD I’m told. If not send me a photo of the board and I’ll ask other people. It’s very true you can’t get info for these it’s indeed quite hard


  2. Hi simon,
    Thank you for your portal where i got to learn a great lot! would like to know the peak and tune you did in the president bill for repeater high and low power..
    John 73


    • Hello John,

      The modification is in the European sold President Bill. If your in USA etc it won’t work. Put it easily

      Move jumper from 1/2 till 2/3
      Cut the white wire
      Solder Closed jumper 3

      No peak and tune as no variables inside to tune.

      But ONLY on European Version



  3. Hi there
    I’m lookikg for a service manual for CRT SS6900N. No plans to like around but for educational purposes only.


    • Hi There. Only via CRT if you are a dealer. Factory does not release it since intellectual copyright theft from previous models..

      For educational purposes other service manuals are on here to download


  4. hallo
    gibt es eine möglichkeit die crt 270 m zu erweitern????
    rx/tx hab ich 144-146mhz und 430-440mhz.
    mfg werner


  5. Does anybody know how to extend a TYT TH-8600 that is limited to 144-146 and 430 -440 beyonf that? Tried already Programming SW, but without luck.


  6. Recientemente e adquirido un AT-778UV hay alguna modificacion para este radio que de mas prestaciones,las que sean,gracias


  7. Hello dear sir, I’d like to put my problem here, looking forward for your kind opinion and (maybe) your suggestions.
    My Anytone AT-588 UHF amateur tranceiver, transmits normally in full, medium or low power, without problems in the whole amateur uhf band, in simplex mode.
    But if I try to transmit, in order to open the nearby repeater (in distance less than 10 miles), using the 88.5 tone and the -7.600 shift in memory channel 02, my voice is distorted (according to the reports of other hams + my monitor from a rearby handheld).
    I tried to reset the rig, from the RESTORE menu, but the problem still exists.
    My power supply is quite strong, the feeding line is a checked 50 ohms RG 213 cable and the antenna is a factory made Diamond X-50 at 50 ohms.
    Any solution please ??
    Thank you kindly for your time !!


    • Hi Ken. It’s not a resistor as far as i know. Take a look in Modifications II it’s what was sent me. My test piece was unlocked so never saw the mod but it needs the password to unlock it


  8. simon can you throw me any help on the stryker sr25mc converting to 11 meter have a idea but want to make sue I solder right bridge


    • Hi Don.

      On the board should be two resistors stood in the air. One makes the radio cover all the Europe bands like DE, PL and UK. If you cut both it unlocks it for 11 metres. I believe the EU one labelled R299 and one next to it too makes it converted.

      If you’ve a photo send me as not home where radio is currently. But it’s R299 and one next to it 🧙‍♂️


  9. Hi Simon. Thanks for the Info on the Yaesu FT-65/E Radio Tx unlock. It works like a charm!
    Do you have any information in relation to the difrences between the Aisan and European versions? as far as i can see the units and frequencies are the same, the only obvious diffrence being the lack of the Scrambler function Menu Item 39 on the European version.
    I guess what im asking is there any way to put the European verson into Asian Mode to activate the scrambler (voice inverson) function. either by a code input or jumper soldering? or is there a phyical difrence in the units or the firmwares?
    Any information would be apreciated!


  10. buenas tardes,
    pertenezco a un grupo de rescate en Colombia y tengo un yaesu FT 25/E comprado en E.U, realice todos lo pasos que tu mencionas para desbloquear o extender la banda del equipo, el radio se reinicio pero no se desbloquea. agradezco que me puedas ayudar con este tema.



    • From the importer:

  11. Hi Simon,

    thanks a lot for this very usefull information.
    73 de dh1lm, lothar


  12. Hi Simon!

    A question about moding Midland GB1 to “export mode” – is there any soldering needed or is it purely software related issue?
    PS! Thank you for running such an informative blog! Respect!



  13. Hello.. My friend has bought CRT 279UV. In VFO is able to set any freq., but when opened in any SW to program memories, there is band limitations 144-145 and 430-439. Unable program standard HAM repeaters, nothing outside this range.
    Anny suggestion how to expand this?


    • Unfortunately I haven’t got it in my hands, but my friend bought it via local reseller and haven’t doing any modifications. But in VFO mode normaly operating in HAM bands. Yesterday we have been trying program memories, him first and me then via remote desktop and found this non-standard range. If it was out of the box, there should be at least 144-146 but not 144-145.
      70cm we have also 430-440 not 430-439, most of the repeaters have downlink above 439. We have tried it with CHIRP and CRT-VIP-CTS – same issue found. Today evening will try your unlock procedue and will see, if have changed. I’ve go Bao GT3TP and there was possible change it Chirp easily, in this case the range is greyed and unable to change.

      I have not much experience with those chinese radios, not understand, why memory and vfo range are different.


    • Understand you very well. I did check and the radio comes standard 144-146 and 430-440 MHz they told me. So it could be ok as 440Mhz. If not ok let me know and I’ll ask again, but code should work. Others used it and told me it’s ok. It does seems rather strange if you’ve got 144-145 and 430-439


    • Well, unlocking helped, all freq. programmed succesfully..
      Just in Chirp was not able set channel+names on display, was set via CRT-VIP
      All as QYT KT-9800D model..

      Thanks for help.. Best regards..


    • I tried the youtube ft65e mod on my e model but it doesn’t work. Gigaparts says I definitely have the E model. Help


    • Hi Jeff. Unless they’ve changed something the modification is correct as I’ve over 100 mails about it. Did you try same way as on the video online? And it’s sure in USA you’ve an E Version as I believe gigaparts is in USA


    • I was asked this just this morning. AT-5289 needs programming software to unlock it fully 25.6-30.1 and can use same programming cable as the Stryker SR-955 / SR-655 / CRE8900 and Alinco DR-135DX


  14. Hi Simon, i don’t suppose the Yaesu FT-891 TX MARS / CAP Mod is available yet is it, i’ve approached Yaesu UK but they refuse to issue me the info

    Kind Regards,
