To recall a memory stored per the previous sec-
tion, you first must switch to the "Memory" mode. To
do this, while operating on the Main VFO, press [ VFO/
MEM ] . The last-utilized memory's contents will appear
in the main frequency display field. To return to VFO
operation, just press [ VFO/MEM ] once more; the VFO's
contents will have remained undisturbed.
While operating in the memory mode (if you haven't
yet re-tuned it - see below), the "MEM" indicator is dis-
played instead of "VFO," and you can now rotate the
VRF/MEM CH knob or press the microphone UP/DWN
buttons to select any previously-stored memories for
Pressing and holding in the [ M
ond copies the current memory channel data into VFO-
A. You can now tune around on the Main VFO, having
used the memory channel's frequency as a starting
point. When you press and hold in [ M
the previous contents of the Main VFO, and if you were
receiving on the VFO, operation shifts to the frequency
and mode just copied from the memory.
Pressing the [ M
A ] key momentarily shows you
the contents of the memory, without overwriting VFO-
A data. This is a momentary version of the [ M CK ] key's
With this mode, you can emulate VFO tuning and
operation on a memory channel and retain the memory
checking feature: if you change frequency, mode or Clari-
fier settings, "MEM" is replaced with "MTUNE". During
memory tuning, the microphone UP/DWN buttons now
duplicate tuning knob functions like VFO operation
(rather than select memory channels as before). Press-
ing [ VFO ( MEM )] once cancels any re-tuning changes
to the memory and reverts to the memory recall mode
("MEM" displayed again). Pressing [ VFO/MEM ] once
more returns the transceiver to VFO operation.
Memory Tuning makes operation on memories 1
to 99 just as flexible as the VFOs (memories P1 ~ P9
have special additional features, described later). If you
want to save changes to a re-tuned memory channel,
use the same procedure you use to store the VFOs to
memory: Press [ VFO/MEM ] momentarily, and rotate
the VRF/MEM CH knob to select another memory (if
desired), or just hold [ A
double beep sounds (to overwrite the current memory
with the re-tuned data).
The labeling and function of [ A
tuning is somewhat deceptive as the VFO settings,
which are hidden at this point, are not involved in this
operation at all, since those of the recalled memory
have taken their place.

Important Note: Computer software programs uti-
lizing the CAT system interface port may presume
that the transceiver is operating in the VFO mode for
certain features like "band mapping" and/or frequency
logging. Because the "Memory Tune" mode so closely
resembles the VFO mode, be sure that you have the
MARK-V FT-1000MP operating in a control mode com-
patible with your software's requirements.
Before storing or recalling a memory, you will usu-
ally want to check its contents. One memory channel
number is displayed at all times (just to the left of the
CH indicator at the right center of the display). You can
change the selected channel number by rotating the
VRF/MEM CH knob.
If you rotate this knob while receiving on the VFO
or a re-tuned memory, "MCK" blinks beneath the chan-
nel number, and the mode and frequency previously
stored in the selected channel will be displayed in place
of the SUB VFO-B display. for three seconds after you
stop turning the knob. If the memory is vacant, "CLEAR"
appears above the channel number and nothing is dis-
played except two decimal points.
You can also view memories by pressing [ M CK ] ,
in which case memory data is continuously displayed
("MCK" remains on and doesn't blink). You must press
[ M CK ] again to return the display to the VFO.
Momentarily pressing either [ A
activates memory checking. As mentioned before,
"MCK" blinks as the frequency and mode indicators
change to show the contents of the last-selected
memory. If you touch nothing else, the display reverts
to your current operating parameters automatically af-
ter 3 seconds. By turning the front panel VRF/MEM
CH knob before the 3 seconds expires, you can select
for display each of the general purpose and PMS
memories. Pressing these buttons restarts the 3-sec-
ond timer, so as long as you are changing channels,
memory checking mode persists.
Note: When checking memories, both vacant and
filled memories are displayed. If you would like to skip
over vacant memories, press the [ FAST ] button be-
fore memory checking.
