My 6700 displays "calibrating" on startup for several seconds every time I start the radio.
I assume this is normal but I am unable to find any reference to it anywhere.
What is it calibrating? Is this different from the calibration found in radio setup?
Thanks,

When the radio is booting up, it goes through a self calibration process making sure all the internal subsystems are working properly before allow you to use the radio.  The frequency calibration in the Setup form is for doing a frequency calibration against a known frequency source, like WWV or CHU.
