no power out when maestro is in ssb tune mode

Jeff Member ✭✭
I have a Flex Maestro and 6600.  I use these in combination with a KPA 500 and KAT 500 Tuner.

With the internal tuner bypassed, I used to be able to press the Tune button on the Maestro and provide a signal for the external tuner to tune when in USB or LSB mode.  Now when I press the Tune button I don't get any power output from the 6600.  If I change the mode on the 6600 to AM, then I do get a signal output to the external tuner.

If I bypass the external tuner and activate the internal 6600 tuner, it tunes in LSB or USB mode.

In all cases, the power output level setting in the Maestro indicates in should be transmitting with a power level of 10 watts.

When I test the tune function using SmartSDR for Windows and my PC, selecting the tune button generates a signal for my external tuner to use in LSB or USB modes.

The Maestro used to work the same way.  

The 6600 provides full output when modulation is present in USB or LSB.

I am running Version on the 6600 and Maestro.

Any ideas on how to restore this function in the Maestro?

    My 6600M has started doing the same thing.  From a power off boot, with no network connection, there is no way in SSB to get power output in TUNE.  For such operations, I have to switch to CW mode.

    My 6700 is doing the same, but with SmartSDR on my main PC.  TUNE works fine on my iPhone, or on a second computer running SmartSDR.  Both are running 3.0.27.
