60 meters lost with 2.0.17 upgrade.

when trying to tune my antenna to channel 1 of 60 meters, The ATU refuses to do so. Even the Tune button does nothing. This used to work on 1.10.16 software. 1.11.12 also fails. What happened?

    I also upgraded to 2.0.19 with the same result. Seems to have happened between 1.10.16 and the 2.0.17 release.

    If 5.330.5 is used the tune button is available but as Phill stated it does nothing. If 5.330.55-5.330.7 It will tune and TX.

    Wonder if there is a Beta check list?

    In SSB and DIGx modes, TUNE is done on the carrier frequency to prevent QRM in the receive passband.  On 60m, this is a special case because you are at the edge of a channel and emission is not allowed at the carrier frequency because some of the RF energy is outside of the channel designation.  You need to tune to a frequency inside the channel bandwidth to use the TUNE feature as indicated by David above.

    Many thanks. I tried that solution and it works. I guess I'll just have to remember that for next time!
