Re: FT-847 question - lost 75 and 160 meter xmit


Somewhere along the way I pushed the "Tuner" button.  That turned on the
"TUNER" indicator on the LCD display.  I never could get it to turn
off...and it didn't seem to affect anything, so I left it alone.  (I have no
tuner connected.)

After reading your note, I decided to fiddle with the controls a bit more.
I learned that to turn off the tuner you first do a long press (to activate
the tuning process - and the "WAIT" indicator).  Then after the "WAIT"
indicator goes off you quickly do a short press and that turns off the
"TUNER" indicator.  With the tuner turned off I now have 75 and 160 meters

Going back now the "TUNER" seems to toggle on and off normally.   The
frequency jumpers had nothing to do with the problem.

Thanks for your help!!!
