I noted this today after my flex 6300 shut off  three times.....on 20mts....I performed ATU on frequency 14.203....and shows success...but at 14.250 and down shows "Success" and "BYP" lights on.....what does mean?   ATU is not necessary and by pass itself?

Thanks

Review the SmartSDR software Manual.  Bypass is a successful tune state.

If the ATU cannot find a better match than the antenna by itself and the SWR is less than the maximum threshold, the the BYPASS state is a successful tune state because you can use the antenna.
