Always get the error message on shut down of radio.
Shut down radio and wait, then shut power off.
What is the proper procedure? This is still happening on latest release.

What is your shutdown sequence? I "x" out of Power SDR, then power off the radio. I get no errors under 0.16.4.

That is my method also.

1. Shut down SDR software.
2. Pust button on front of radio and wait. No changes while waiting.
3. Shut off power to radio. Get the error message and then it shuts down.

I believe what you might be seeing is the over/under voltage error on the power supply shutdown. The radio monitors the incoming power even after the front power switch is off. I believe this is normal and nothing to worry about as the radio monitors power once it is on the incoming terminals.

There was a previous post several weeks ago about this exact low PS voltage error message. It is not a problem.

You are correct. I have found that if I shut power off on radio and within a few seconds, shut off the power supply, it does not give the error message. So I assume the radio is monitoring the voltage, and is still seeing 13.8V. on shutdown. All is well then.

Sure will be nice to get the manual in V.1.

You are 100% correct. You are getting a low voltage error message when the voltage goes below 9 VDC
