Flex Tuner Genius

Mike. Member ✭✭
Flex 6600M, Flex Tuner Genius and Flex Power Genius amp. Two different antennas.
Coax to antenna 1 is connected via A ports on radio, amp and tuner and to antenna 2 via B ports on radio, amp and tuner,
Tuner works as it should on antenna 1 but when trying to tune antenna 2 the tuner readout shows "no band data" and will not operate.
How do I convince the radio to send band data to the tuner?
Mike, WM5DX.

    I had that happen a couple of times this week. I'm running Flex-6600 v3.7.3, Ant Genius v4.1.7, TGXL v1.2.11, and PGXL v3.8.4. In each case, just holding down the my key (dashes) in CW mode for a second (with PGXL placed in standby mode) fixed it, and the error did not reoccur again that day. Previously, I tried powering ON/OFF all these equipment, but that did not fix the issue. YMMV

    In Tuner Genius setup, make sure in Flex Radio tab that B is enabled and has the radio s/n , Ant2, and LAN PTT selected.

    The tuner will not switch to in circuit until you PTT or hit CW key. Make sure radio TX delay is at least 30 ms.

    Also in all Flex setup the Genius Integration tab should not have the Power Genius selected.

    Thank you for the response, much appreciated. I rather jumped the gun with my post, ten minutes after I posted I read the Tuner manual and found the answer! Now tuner is working ok with both antennas.

    Many thanks again for posting, I will not be so hasty in future and will endeavor to operate my brain before operating the keyboard!
