Today when I turned on the radio it got stuck in calibration mode then displayed TIMEOUT and led is blinking  red. Pulling the power then reconnecting did not help.

    My 6500 had a similar problem two years ago.  After a 'quiet' while, it booted up normally.  However, if I then turned it off.  Turned it back on immediately, it did the same "timeout" routine.  Eventually, I returned it and there was a major failure in a component.  Mine was under warranty and I did not get a printed report of the problem.   Since then, it has worked flawlessly.   de N5LN

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.
