Yaesu FT-470 Cross-Band Repeat

If you turn on the radio with the RPT key depressed, the radio becomes a crossband repeater. Dial up two frequencies you want to crosslink (be sure to pay attention to transmit offsets, if any), turn the radio off. Depress the RPT key while turning it back on.
The tone encode/decode flags and the -+ flags will be flashing. When either band's squelch opens, the other band is moved into the primary frequency display and the transmitter keys.
Note that the power output is decreased to LOW power. I made up an audio interface, using a mini and sub-mini phone plug. Tie the grounds together, and connect the center pins through a 0,01 uF cap. and 47K resistor in series.
Adjust the volume control to about the 11 O'clock position. It work for both simplex cross-band and using a repeater on one band and a simplex freq on the other band. You do have to wait for the repeater to drop before you transmit on the simplex freq.
