Hi Roger,

Do you have the Band Data 1, Band Data 2 (Control) and ALC cables connected

I'm not using the band data 2 for the auto tune, but otherwise as far as I can see it should work.
which is listed as not needed except for that function.

I do need to check the grounding, but the auto band switching should work just by changing bands.

I had a Tokyo Hy Power 1.5 KFX and the band switching was flawless.

per page 13 of the FTDX-5000 user manual? Band tracking, F SET and TUNE
should all work if all the required interconnecting cables are in place.

Subject: [Yaesu] Quadra

I picked up a quadra and an FT1000 MK-V.  I wanted the Quadra to go with my
5000MP and the 1000 as a back up.

So far I think I have the proper cable in the proper places and menu 172
enabled on the 5000MP.

When I turn on the 5000MP the Quadra powers up and goes through the self
check and gives me Protection ON, Voltage NORMAL, Bias Check, Temp Normal,
Maintenance Mode ON, Slave ON.

My problem is I can't get the Quadra to change bands. It stays on 50 MHz.  I
can set it to manual, press F-Set and key the exciter (with low
power)  It goes through its cycle, but the band still doesn't change.

Any thoughts?

I'm a complete novice where the Quadra is concerned and am sticking strictly
to the procedures in the manual.
