Flashing red power button when I operate the push to talk on the mike or when I hit the dit or dah on the paddle. When I first turn on the radio the power button the light is green and stay that way until I attempt to transmit. The radio receive okay. This is a brand new radio right out of the box received it yesterday. Any help is appreciated

I should have added after the power button flashes red a few time the radio shuts down

I found the problem. I have a wireless antenna switching system due to the long distance from the shack to the towers.

The link between the wireless units failed and the switch at the far end grounds all the inputs to protect against lightning.

That resulted in the radio shutting down instantly to protect it self. Once I restored the antenna switching link all is well!

I thank everyone for the help.
