Front panel LED switches from green(RCV) to Red (xmit) for only an instant on xmit. Should'nt it stay red during the entire xmit cycle?

According to the manual, this is correct.

6.6.1 Chart for Indicator Color Codes 

SOLID BRIGHT RED: Transmitting on PA


SOLID ORANGE: Transmitting on XVTR port with low power
SOLID DIM RED: Transmit engaged, but transmit interlocks are not ready. Refer to SmartSDR documentation for description of transmit interlocks.
SOLID PURPLE: Radio is performing a software update
SOLID GREEN: Radio is in receive mode
FLASHING RED: Flashing three blinks indicates radio software is not running
OFF: Radio turned off, oscillators are off.
FLASHING DIM PURPLE: Radio is performing a persistence database rest

I should have said in CW it does not stay on while sending. it will blink once when you start and they just stay green. in ssb it stays red the whole time while xmitting. I ust have something incorrect or misunderstand

OK! I think I found the problem! I moved the delay down to zero and when I transmit in cw it stays red! If I move the slider up for delay, then it will just blink red and then stay green while I'm transmitting. Maybe I just did not notice it before.

May want to do a factory default reset on the radio, and/or shutdown with removal of power for a few minutes. Both can help clear a lot of odd states.

Think Tim has already entered this behavior into list for fixing.

We have been working on the LED illumination code for v1.4, so this particular issue may be fixed in the upcoming release.
