This mode recalls a pre-configured operating "en-
vironment" (mode, filter selections, offsets, etc.) by
pressing and hold in the [ PKT ] key on the front panel.
This can be useful for storing your favorite combi-
nation of operational settings for a mode you often use.
Digital operators who go through the various proce-
dures of combining filter selections, carrier and dis-
play offsets, etc., for a custom environment optimized
for FAX or SSTV (as an example) can store these set-
tings for easy recall. For special modes that require
unique configuration of transceiver settings that are not
used elsewhere, the "USER" mode comes in handy
for storing these parameters while keeping other trans-
ceiver settings default for general operation.
The following parameters are user-customized by
recalling menu selection 8-6. Operating parameters are
chosen by turning the SUB VFO-B tuning knob, while
parameter settings are changed with the MAIN VFO-A
knob (see below).

Select the op-
tion to which
setting will be
Mode - Select from LSB, USB, CW (upper or lower),
RTTY (upper or lower), or Packet (lower sideband only).
Display Offset - Choose a custom offset ±5.000
kHz (in 5-Hz steps) to be displayed when the "USER"
mode is active.
Tx and Tx PLL Offset - Choose a custom PLL off-
set ±5.000 kHz (in 5-Hz steps) to take effect when the
"USER" mode is active.
Tx and Tx Carrier - Changes the carrier injection
frequency between 450-460 kHz.
RTTY Custom Shift - Choose a custom (non-stan-
dard) RTTY shift of ±5.000 kHz (in 5-Hz steps) when
the "User" mode is active.
"Easy Setting" - this allows choosing one of two
factory-configured settings optimized for either SSTV
(slow scan television) or FAX (facsimile) operation.
With the user settings customized as desired, press
and hold in the [ PKT ] key (its red LED blinks for three
seconds when activated) to recall the "User" mode.
The custom settings will take effect, and the display
changes to reflect the new operating mode. To exit the
"User" Mode, simply press any band, mode or function
key so the red LED in the [ PKT ] key turns off.
Note: see pages 106 and 107 for a complete listing
of default settings according to operating mode.
While the "USER" Mode allows customizing op-
eration for various operating environments, chang-
ing some settings (especially the PLL offset and
carrier injection) can adversely affect transceiver
operation. Before making any "USER" Mode ad-
justments, ensure you have a firm understanding
on how changing these affect transceiver opera-
tion and frequency display. If you are not sure, we
recommend leaving them as set (to their default
values shown in the table).
You can return all transceiver settings (menu se-
lections) to their default values at any time by per-
forming a CPU reset. Simply hold the [ SUB ( CE )] ,
[ 29 ( 0 )] , & [ ENT ] keys together while turning the
MARK-V FT-1000MP Operating Manual
