UNKEY message - locks up both Power Genius and SmartSDR (Flex 6400)
While running my Power Genius, an UNKEY RADIO message appeared on the screen of the Power Genius. SWK was 1.3 and I was only running about 30 watts of drive to the amp and 800 or so out. Temps were around 50C. Unfortunately, SmartSDR also became unresponsive and I could not unkey the radio via SmartSDR. SmartSDR continued to be unresponsive even after rebooting - essentially, the radio locked up. I finally had to power down both the radio and the power amp to clear the fault - when powered back up, all was fine. There was no indication of what caused the fault . Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a diagnostic log that can be accessed to learn what caused the fault?
Some context: My concern is that I operate the radio remotely on a regular basis and am often not close to the radio and amp. Fortunately, I have a wifi switch that can cut power to the radio but I haven't yet built a 220V wifi switch for the power amp. Until I do, I will not use the amp if not present to cut power.
Any thoughts or insights will be appreciated.
