This morning, while fooling around trying to get the RS-232
interface function working on the Delta II (it is radio 2; radio
1 is the Omni VI on another serial port).  When I boot TRLog, the
Delta II gets keyed steadily.  Alt-x'ing out of TRLog, editing
the configuration to inhibit radio 2, then rebooting clears the
key problem.

In an attempt to find out what was happening, the 305 serial
interface converter 'manual' referred to the 536 manual for a
keyboard entry procedure to set the radio address.  In an attempt
to locate it (it's nowhere that I've been able to find in the 536
manual--anyone know what it is?), I somehow have locked the radio
off.  It will power up, but I get no display.  The last keyboard
command I gave was Function + Split.  The display responded with
M. Lock or Mode Lock...forgot which, already.  I tried to clear
it with Enter and F+Split, but nothing cleared it.  I powered the
radio off, removed the power supply power, reconnected and
powered back up, but the radio power comes on, the LCD screen
backlight comes on, and that's it.  No data on the screen, no

Any clues?

Has anyone connected a model 305 to the Delta II and got it
working? What's your setup?

Has anyone experienced this shutdown?  What was the resolution?

Thanks for any info/help you can provide.
