PGXL Interlock Prevents TX on MARS 2 MHz Frequency
The PGXL is working fine on all the other frequencies that I need to reach with respect to my Army MARS operations. Mostly in the 3 - 16 MHz range.
I'm now trying to reach down to the 2 MHz range because of the change in time of a net and the drop in the propagation support for any higher frequency.
When I configure the 6700 for the frequency the PGXL does not 'get' the band information to change down to the 160m segment I guess, and when I try to transmit with the PGXL in line I get a popup that says "Interlock is preventing transmisson" even if I have manually selected the 160m segment on the PGXL.
Seems like last winter it would work fine. I would only try to use about 600w max because of the external antenna tuner I was using, but it would transmit.
Any ideas as to what may have changed and/or how I can work around this obstacle?
I recently updated the PGXL Firmware to 3.4.16 but it was showing the same symptom in the previous firmware (3.4.10) that I was using.
