SW3.2.39, USB to parallel still alive after power down

Hi

I use a USB to parallel cable to indicate the band to my BCD-Decimal decoder for antenna/filter switching.

Since the update to 3.2.39 the FLEX-6600M output for this cable switches to the 80 m equivalent setting when powered off. This is an unwanted behavior. How can this be eliminated? I don't switch off the 12 V dc supply from the radio as this is needed for other devices.

    If you can confirm this did not happen before 3.2.39 and also confirm that settings were identical, that would be helpful.

    I'll open a support ticket for you.

    Hi Mike

    Yes, I can confirm this. The same hardware was in use before and switching off the radio with the front button only would also switch off the USB --> no output. This released antennas used for the skimmers running on our site. Since update to 3.2.39 the USB output is locking in the 80 m position.

    I think Dan is looking at your ticket, so please pass that on to him.
