Came in the shack this afternoon and found that my 6300 will not transmit....well...press the Tune button, Red TX led lights but there is no output and no increase in the DC current (apart from what I guess is the TX relay)
I dont remember altering anything....

Panicking now...

Are you out of band?  Check all modes including tune.

Also make sure you haven't selected XVTR as the TX antenna.

Another piece of info Roger, look at the color of the LED on the 6300 when you TX with ANT1 vs XVTR. When TXing with the transverter port the light is actually ORANGE.

FRS, maybe PURPLE or YELLOW might be a better color choice as it is difficult to tell the difference between the RED and the ORANGE.

Try rebooting SmartSDR, then closing down SmartSDR CAT, then restarting SmartSDR CAT.

Hi

Go to the DAX panel and make sure the Blue TX light is lite up if not select it.
