Trying 60 Meters on 6600 ?

W2ECKW2ECK Member ✭✭
I am sure this is an old conversation but new for me. Trying to do SSB on the 60M channels but can't get the frequency changes to take effect on my 6600. I type in the dial freq for a channel and hit enter and  it's ignored, radio doesn't change to new frequency. I am in USB mode and on a 60M capable antenna. But ATU & tune buttons are grayed out - so I have something wrong is setup. Can someone set me straight??

    Transmit bandwidth set too wide?

    I have tried reducing the Tx Filter Band width all the way down to 1000 khz and still can't get the SSDR to accept Channels 1,2,4 and 5- it will accept Ch 3. I read the link that kd5foy sent but didn't get anything out of that that solved issue. Would love to hook up with someone who is successfully doing SSB on 60 meters and can show me the error of my ways

    Instead of typing, use the band-key and switch to 60 meters. Make sure you're
    in USB and either drag the frequency to 5330.5 or Flex control and make sure
    it is on 5330.5 usb. Look at my attached pic. It is doing the tune-up on CH 1.
    My transmit bandwidth is 2800 KHz. The buttons for Tune and ATU are not
    greyed out and neither should yours. The five channels are to the left.

    Jim - that did the trick !!!! - dragging to the appropriate channel frequency - works super. Thank you very much.

    That's good. The only thing I can think possibly happened before
    would be leaving out, or incorrectly placing, a decimal.

    73, and Have Fun.

    Once I figured out 60M I put all 5 frequencies with the correct settings into the memory list. Now I don't have to remember.

    Paul wanted a screen shot of my settings so I thought I would post it here also.image
