When I turn on the amp and then turn on the radio, while the radio is going thru the calibrate sequence the amp will go into the transmit screen, it shows no output power though. 

What is up with that?

I’m not sure but the most likely intelligent guess would be the TX connection closes momentarily as part of the boot process, as it’s checking out everything. I’d cure that by not turning the amp on first. It’s instant on so no warmup is needed.

The TX Relay ports are initializing and will close momentarily on power up.  Power up the radio before the amp.

Was this something new in the latest release of SSDR? It never did this before.

The same thing in  SSDR with USB cable as BIT, configured for TX will enable TX at start of the Radio and keep initial level up to any slice are selected.
That means are Radio ON, then Transverter ON on my side.
I think necessary to find out solution independently with On/Off sequence.
