RE: [FT100] Re: Extening 40M
- Hi Mark,
That's probably one way of doing it as long as it doesn't impact on any
other bands that you use. Just remember that is you change the region
settings that you will wipe the memories and will have to enter them all

- Hi Mark,
Good plan, and certainly the least intrusive.
BUT watch out for 80M, which is different for the UK and, of course
2M. If you're a VHF user, then you'll probably find the automatic
repeater shift selection useful - and it's wrong on V/UHF unless the
rig is correctly set to the UK.
Opening it up to all band is very simple - and with care, you can
save the resistors to re-install if you want to sell the rig on (you
won't!). The only thing to watch is that, if unlocked, it's very
easy, particularly when mobile, to operate accidentally out of
I can help you with either (best done off-line) if you want.
