Hi all I have a strange problem. I have a 6400 with a  maestro. When I hit the tune button on the  maestro I am not getting a carrier to engage the plaster HF-Auto. When I load smart SDR it works fine. Both the maestro and SmartSDR are set for power output. Any ideals

    In my case, when "tune" did not work, I was advised to make sure the CW "pitch" setting was set to 600 HZ.   Choose CW as the mode, then go to the "transmit" menu by pressing the TX Menu knob in.   Set CW pitch to 600 HZ.

    You stated that the power was set to the same level in SSDR and the Maestro.  Just to make sure,  I have to ask the following, is the "TUNE POWER" set the same in both?    Tune power on the Maestro  setting is accessed by pressing the "MIC Gain knob to display the TX menu.   I had the same problem several years ago, it took an hour to sort it out.  The Maestro "Tune Power" was set to zero, I don't know how it got there but it did.

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.
