Kenwood Th-d7a(g) Problem: Transmit Bars

Followers 0

Recommended Posts

This looks like a firmware problem. Just wondering if anyone else has seen

it with a new TH-D7A(G).


Data Band: B

144MHz setting,

TNC on, trying to transmit beacon.


It transmits OK, the red light comes on OK, but the bar indicator (received

signal strength/battery level) doesn't budge. [The bar indicator actually

shows battery level on transmit, not RF power.]


If you try any other combination:

transmit voice (PTT instead of beacon)

440MHz on Data Band B

144 MHZ on Data Band A


the bar indicator will activate (showing battery level) when you transmit

or beacon.


I pinged on Kenwood about this, but they haven't responded yet.
