if your sweep was on, this is a known gremlin they are trying to track down,
1.367 included. when it has happened to me, i noticed the indicated swr was
like 5 or 6:1. after power cycling, this fault clears. if you have this
happen to you again, you might note the swr - or any other anomoly that
might contain a clue for tentec - and e-mail that information to them. i
was also pushing buttons to change the audio settings, vfo's, and antennas
around at the time in the cq160 contest. they'll catch it.
