I have a TenTec 1210 that I need to use on my Flex 6500 but the flex will not go above 29.700.  I''m trying to get to 30.535 mhz (146.535 on 2 meters) and this is a big problem for me.  Can this be fixed?

I've noticed it stops transmitting at 29.5 here. Thought it might be related to the FM function. Maybe not?

Turns out you must use the XTVR BNC output BUT, that's only 32mw output and my TenTec needs at least 50mw just to get MAYBE 2 or 3 watts output.  This means unless Flex helps me open up the 10 meter band to go to 32 mhz on ANT1 or 2, I'm out in the cold.  I'm not happy...
