33. VFO & Memory Control
B ] Button:
Pressing this button for ½ second (until the double
beep) transfers data from the main display (either Main
VFO-A or a recalled memory channel) to Sub VFO-B,
overwriting any previous contents in the Sub VFO. Use
this key to set both Main and Sub Receivers to the
same frequency and mode.
B ] Button:
Pressing this button momentarily exchanges the
contents of Main VFO-A (or a recalled memory chan-
nel), and Sub VFO-B. No data is lost.
[ M GRP ] Button:
When more than one memory group has been en-
abled, pressing this button limits selection and scan-
ning to those memories within the selected group.
[ M CK ] ( Memory Check ) Button:
This key displays the contents of memory channels
without disturbing operation. When pressed, "M CK"
is displayed above the channel number, and each
memory channel can then be checked on the Sub
Receiver display by rotating the VRF/MEM CH selec-
tor. Empty memory channels display as two decimals,
with no frequency digits. Press this button again to
cancel memory checking.
M ] Button:
Pressing and holding in this key for ½ second (until
the double beep) copies the current operating data from
Main VFO-A, or a recalled memory, to the currently
selected memory channel, overwriting any previous
data stored there. Also, pressing and holding this but-
ton after recalling a memory, without first retuning,
causes the memory channel to be "masked," and re-
peating the process restores the masked memory.
[ RPT ] Button:
For 29 MHz FM operation, this button activates the
standard HF FM repeater offset. Pressing [ RPT ] once
or twice while receiving causes the transmit frequency
to be shifted 100 kHz below or above the receiving
frequency, respectively. A selectable CTCSS
subaudible tone is also transmitted automatically when
using this feature, to allow access to repeaters that
require it. Pressing [ RPT ] a third time cancels repeater
34.BAND ( Keypad )
The keypad provides one-touch band selection, or
digital frequency entry. Normally, pressing one of the
ten white numbered keys selects the corresponding
(MHz) amateur band for operation (pressing the SUB
button first, followed by a [ BAND ] key, selects that band
for the Sub VFO). If you press the white numbered key
for the band you are already on, you will select the
alternate subband VFO on that band. See the "Opera-
tion" chapter for details.
