Add a new element that has its display hidden and then this should work.
function checksubmit(f){
      var radio = f.contactMeYes.value;
      var inputbox = f.ContactMeSpecify.value;
      if(radio =="")
       {
        var error = document.getElementById("IDNAME");
        error.style.display="inline";
         return false;
        }
      else if(radio=="Yes" && inputbox==""){
            var er = document.getElementById("error");
            er.style.display="inline";
            return false;
}else{
            var er = document.getElementById("error");
            er.style.display="none";
            return true;
            }
}
