OVERAGE
You may have already noticed that if you tune out-
side one of the amateur bands (actually, outside of the
500-kHz segment that includes each band), "GEN"
appears in a box at the left side of the display. On such
frequencies, the transmitter and antenna tuner are dis-
abled. If you try to transmit, "TRANSMIT" will blink.
This confirms that transmission has been inhibited by
the microprocessor.
Also, such frequencies are ignored by the band
selection keys, so if you tune a VFO to a frequency
outside of a ham band, you will have to store it in a
memory (as described on page 64) if you want to be
able to recall it quickly later. Otherwise, as soon as you
press a band key, the general coverage frequency will
be lost as the VFO reverts to the (ham-band) frequency
it was on when the band was last changed.
Once you become familiar with the memories, you
will find this really doesn't present a problem, as each
memory can be tuned just like a VFO, and stored into
another channel without having to go through a VFO.
Aside from the above, general coverage reception
provides all of the features available on ham frequen-
cies, including dual channel reception, digital modes,
and diversity reception, described on the following
pages. A wealth of interesting broadcasts can be found
outside the amateur bands, including:
International Shortwave Bands (see table)
Maritime & Aeronautical Communications
News Services & Diplomatic/Embassy Traffic
Military Communications
While tuning outside an amateur band, you may
find the UP ( p ) and DOWN ( q ) keys (below the key-
pad) to be extremely valuable for quick frequency
change. The 100 kHz steps provided by these keys
are ideal for moving quickly through, for example, the
15 MHz international AM broadcast band.

AM Broadcast Reception
In many countries, broadcast stations in the Stan-
dard AM Broadcast Band are separated by a spac-
ing of 9 kHz. The VFO Channel mode of operation
can be highly useful in this case, as you can set
the VFO channel step size to 9 kHz. Use the Main
VFO-A knob to set a starting frequency, then press
and hold in the VRF/MEM CH knob for ½ second.
If "9 kHz" has been set via menu selection 1-5 , you
can now use the VRF/MEM CH knob to tune
through the broadcast band in the desired 9 kHz
steps.
