Is There a Way to Reset TX Inhibit on Flex 6600M?

Al DeweyAl Dewey Member ✭✭

Sometimes in heat of battle using SO2R in a CW Contest, I get a little aggressive and try to switch slices from Radio A to Radio B while Radio A is still transmitting on my 6600M. My objective is to abort transmission on Radio A and start transmitting on Radio B. This is something I try to avoid as it is not really good practice. Sometimes when I do this , I lose TX power on the whole radio and see that "TX Inhibit" is flagged on the Transmit page. Also the Power Indicator (which is usually set to 100) goes from red to gray.

My question is this. Is it possible to re-enable transmission without re-booting the radio? I have not found a way so I usually end up re-booting the radio and power is back. But it means that I have lost a couple minutes or so before I am up and going again.

Again, I realize the best way is for me to avoid switching slices before transmission is complete. I also realize that the TX Inhibit is protecting the finals which is good. However, in the rare instance where this happens, is there a way to get going again quickly without rebooting the radio?

Just wondering.

    I think you should be able to reset that by going to Menu>TX band setting and clear 'PTT inhibit' of the band in question..

    Al;

    That makes sense. I'll try that the next time it happens. Thanks!
