Brand new 6300 and NO RF Pwr or SWR meter function

Ok, so, I am brand spanking new to the FR system and set up, but I am having a ball figuring it out. ONE minor issue, the RR Power and SWR meters do not indicate anything.  I have an inline meter which shows both being proper. Just NO indication on the computer screen meters. Be gentle now and tell me what I have not done properly. Thank you VERY much in advance!

    Hi Pat,


    Well they should not need any tweaking or settings changed for them to work.

    In the TX slice what do you have set as your TX antenna?  It is the red one?  

    Not sure that is gonna tell us anything because you seem to imply that  you are getting power out using your external meter.

    Are you on an M series radio?  The one with the knobs on front?  You did say on the computer screen.  

    So I wonder about some network lag going on...

    And, no knobs on the front. FR6300.

    Ok, I figured it out. I had the RF Power turned down to about 10W and it would not show on the display meter. Punched it up to 100W and  both of the meters started working. Go figure?  Thank you!!
