Tim - sometimes soon after I turn on my 6700 and without having transmitted, the side fans go into high mode for about 5 seconds, then slow for about 10 seconds, then back into high for a few seconds, then back to slow. This does not happen every time I turn the radio on.

A guess Tim. I have probably turned on the radio about 10 times. It happened about 3 times.

OK. It sounds like you may have an intermittent short happening in the temp sensor that is causing this behavior. I am converting your community problem into a HelpDesk ticket so that we can determine if this is the source the problem

You got it Tim. It is mechanically intermittent. A slight bounce will change the fans from low to high or back. Got the rma from Dudley.
Thanks guys,
