    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I did the mars/cap mod for my radio and now can't seem to get it into bank scan mode?.. I've used the Yaesu software prior and after to program the radio.. but again can't seem to get it into bank scan mode.. argh..

What am I doing wrong? or is this a bug?

Any help would be appreciated.

I too am curious about this mod making changes to the programming capability of the radio. Holding off on MARS modding my ft-70 at the moment, no need for the extra frequency beyond emergencies.

I can't say for the FT-70 that your results are to be expected, but it has been seen for other models of Yaesu HTs that changing the factory setup using pads on the circuit board has consequences beyond the intended objective.

Usually the unintended is documented in the modification procedure. This might be a case of earlier adopter and you are breaking new ground.

Good Luck,
Mike
