SmartSDR v1.4.0 No Transmit Power Output on FM

Loaded SmartSDR v1.4.0 onto my FLEX-6700, s/n 1713-3011-6700-4673. 

I decided to try out the new FM capability.  I went to 29.600 MHz on 10m & also to 52.525 MHz on 6m.  In both cases, the panadapter shows carrier when I key the rig & sidebands when I talk, but external power meter shows 0 Watts out.

    Cold boot the radio by powering off and removing DC power for 15-30 seconds.

    I cannot confirm this behavior.    My FM puts out power and I can key a local 10M or 6M repeater.  Perhaps backup your profiles, reset the radio to defaults, try again.  Import profiles after testing to verify a profile isn't the cause if Tim's suggestion doesn't work?

    PS.  Your software is awesome.  Thank you for contributing to the community.

    I had to toggle the RPT controls a couple of times to get things. Once it kicked in, it's been sweet.

    Okay, Tim,

    I get 30 lashes with a wet noodle!  Found out no power out in any mode.  So, I was in the process of doing exactly that when I read your reply.  I had meant to do a cold reboot of the radio after the install, but was so anxious to try out the new "stuff", that I forgot.  All is well now. Thanks.
