Thanks for your assuming imput, I have in fact read the manual from front 

to back and have seen the menu selection in "menu 3" that allows you to
do that. 

Unfortunatly that is NOT my problem. My problem is that the clock resets
to 12:00 and the 

frequency no matter what band your on resets back to 14.000.00. when you
turn the power off

<excerpt>As I said to that last person that told me to read the manual in

</excerpt>group " go fuck yourself!!!! . 

<excerpt>I indeed have read the manual and could not 

solve my problem so I went to the mail reflector for assistance. I have 

received many notes of assistance and only two gave 

me smartass replies!!!!!!! 73 my friend 


While I don't agree with this sort of reply, perhaps we can learn a
couple of lessons

from it:

First, assume nothing, and read nothing into messages.

Second, a response of "Read the manual" is not helpful, and may as well
not have been 

sent.  A more helpful reference would be, "Check page xx of the manual to
see if this

helps the problem."
