Tuning Issues

My 6700 seems to fail when using the ATU after having just come back from the PEN modification.  Before the 'update' it always seemed to tune up just fine with maybe a 1 out of a 100 failure rate.  Now it seems to fail 90 percent of the time.  While the radio was gone no changes were made to any coax or antenna connections.  They just sat there waiting for the radio to be returned.

Anyone else seeing this issue?

What kind of antenna are you using? Never, ever had a problem with my radio tuner but I am using a balanced antenna with a choke BALUN. Often, such problems are due to excessive RF in the shack. A problem that seems to plague many Flex owners.
