Default Had the same problem

Hi there,

I recently had the same problem with my VX-6R. I tracked mine down to a failed component on the board which I replaced and everything is now working beautifully again.

To see if it is the same issue, do this check: Leave RF Squelch set to Off, and set the normal SQL setting to 3 or where ever you normally set it before it broke.

See if you had the same symptoms as me... I had crappy receive level and constantly open squelch on AM and NFM receive, on all bands. However, I noticed that I had no problem whatsoever with WFM receive, listening to FM broadcast radio stations for example was no problem. Additionally, my TX worked fine as well.

If yours is behaving like this, then it's highly likely you have the same failure as me and I can post the details of the fix
