I’m experiencing persistence problems with my 6700 on both
the latest production release and also on the Beta release 220.127.116.11.
This problem has actually been going on for a while but I hadn’t tried to nail it down to a particular cause. For that matter, I wasn’t sure if the problem might even be related to an incorrect configuration of memories or profiles.
My major persistence concern are the power level settings are not being remembered across my transverter bands. While changing bands from any HF or 6M frequency to one of my transverters (I have 7 of them), the power levels set for each transverter band always jumps to 100. Even if I adjust the power level to 20 on each transverter and then I switch to another band and come back to the previous band the level jumps back to 100.
Just to be clear, I’m referring to switching between bands and transverters while using a single set of predefined profiles. Even with DEFAULT profiles it’s my understanding that the power levels should be remembered during the entire session of switching between bands WITHOUT the need to bring up a different profile for a particular band while operating SSB.
So here’s what I’ve done so far.
I’ve RESET the radio to factory settings (using the HOLD the OK button and Power ON trick)
I DID NOT reload any of my saved settings, preferences or profiles after the reset.
I created a New Global profile, transmit profile and Mic profile.
I’ve pulled the USB cable from the 6700 which fed Band Data to my Bandswitcher and left it disconnected.
I’ve turned OFF DDutil and my logging program so as NOT to have any 3rd party program influence.
I manually added a transverter.
I’ve set the power levels for the transverter and saved it to the transmit profile.
So basically I’m running the 6700 BAREBONES with a few basic settings to test persistence.
Even with ALL of the above completed I still can’t get the power settings to be PERSISTENT when changing to transverter bands!
Note that power settings ARE persistent across ALL other HF bands, including the built-in 2M band.
So, it appears transverters will NOT hold their power levels, but revert to 100 after each band change.
