Just given a VX2R by the widow of a friend that went SK. Unit still has some of the local repeater frequencies in it, both 2m and 440, but does not have the pl tones. I have tried repeatedly to program them in using the instructions in the Yaesu manual, but the pl tones refuse to remain programmed. It will transmit and receive fine as long as I leave the radio on the channel that I just entered the pl in, but if I change [programmed] channels or turn the radio off, the pl tone is gone. Is the memory battery bad? I would think it wouldn't retain frequencies if the battery was bad. Or should I do a hard reset on the cpu per the manual instructions and start over? This may be why the radio was in his "left over" radio stuff storage area.
