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
