I noted a similar thing just before SS... no biggee...

when you first turn on the rig and computer instead of everything aligning on the same band (and panic starts setting in) I tried some band switching and things got "on the same page" (or band)

It almost seemed like the rig and the computer were waiting for the other to take the first step so they could learn who would lead and would follow... once they started talking they were fine all weekend long...

It was almost as though the ice had to be broken on a first date...

73 - see everyone in the 10 meter contest...

Now then, my answer may seem strange,
but since you can sync by pressing the ALT/F1 or ALT/F2 a couple of times,
it would seem that you do not have a problem.

here, on this end, upon start-up, even with all radio station components booted from cold, I do the ALT/F1 and ALT/F2, as well - not to sync perhaps, but to check and insure proper interface relationships.

So you and I perform the same function activities, and achieve the same results.

You see a problem, I do not see a problem.

I hope I was properly polite in the tone of my reply.

I am having a problem that occurs when I turn off my FT1000MP that is interfaced to NA logging software. I keep the computer running since it is my interface to Packet. Later, when I turn on the FT1000MP, the software does not sync with the band & mode displayed on NA. The CAT LED does flash as it should.

The only way I can get the two to sync is to press the ALT/F1 or ALT/F2 (band up/down) a number of times, then it may sync. Pressing the band / mode buttons on the radio does not do it.

Is there a command, procedure or other process that will get the radio and software to sync? It is more likely to be an NA problem or FT1000MP problem? Anyone else have this problem.
