Hey George, join the club. 
I think it's called "operator error". 
Don't sweat it, WE ALL DO IT FROM TIME TO TIME !!
I was afraid to post anything back to your earlier E-mail because I
just can't imagine all the things that could go screwy with those Mark V
If you ask me, it's just way more technology then anyone needs at
their finger tips.   I'm still running 1950's Collins gear, Drake C.w.
Yaesu's from the 1970's.   I also have a FT-1000D and two FT-100D
radios (One dedicated for 6 meters in the house & and one mobile.)
I can only imagine what it would be like having that Mark V.
Heck there are things on my FT-1000D that I have rarely ever used in
three years.
