No Tx Menu

Bob W8RMV Member ✭✭
While operating my 6400M in rig mode, when I push in the Mic/Speed PWR knob to access the Tx Menu, nothing happens.  According to pg 145, it should bring up the Tx MENU.  It has the latest s/w.  Any suggestions?

    No suggestions for you Bob, but just wanted to comment that mine does work as the manual suggest.

    Since this looks to be a hardware issue, I have converted this topic to a support HelpDesk ticket (http://helpdesk.flexradio.com) for expedited issue resolution.  Please respond using the HelpDesk ticket for issue resolution.

    Turned out that the outer knob was too close to the inner. I removed the rubber ring from the knob & loosened the hex set **** & moved it out a touch. Apparently, the detent happens before the electrical connection.  Not sure that is the best way to design the switch.  Ideally you'd want the detent feel & switch make up to happen at very nearly the same moment.  A nice 6 Sigma design project for that manufacturer.

    Anyway the TX MENU now works.  Simple fix & thank you Dudley at Flex for the suggestion.

    I just had the same problem with my Maestro. It seems Flex should be testing this function prior to shipping in my opinion.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
