NO RF output. PTT quiets receiver receiver, but does not engage internal antenna relay.
Shows hi SWR on 6600 output meter, but no RF to external Power Meter. Each time I turn the 6600 ON, I have to manually reset antenna selection to Ant 1. Even though it shows it is selecting that antenna, I must switch to another antenna option in Set Up Menu, then back to antenna 1.

 I'm assuming that you have read the manual for setup. If that's the case and you are still having issues, I would definitely contact FRS's Help Desk Monday.

Roger, if you have a dummy load try it first. If SWR is high the transmitter is likely shutting down to protect amp. If using dummy load either tune the ATU or bypass so it’s not tuned to never never land. If no output and you are sure you have load connected to right antenna port etc then contact help desk at FRS.

Flex quickly dispatched UPS to pick up the 6600 for 3 day shipping back for warranty repairs.
Dudley was quick to respond and his support is greatly appreciated.
