> Incidentally, my 1000MP, as delivered, would not transmit below 1830 and gave the 'Off-Band' indication. It is necessary to run it in either general coverage TX mode or 'USA mode' in order to activate the TX below 1830. Was this a simplistic answer to a Yaesu recognised problem??

Hi Dennis ...
SRI to hear about the prob ... How far down from the main signal is
the 'spur' there ? BTW, both of mine are set for general coverage so
that I can use them with transverters soon ... How old is your MP ?
What has Yaesu-Europe said about this to date ? I think this is all
new-news to users over here ... So far it's been EU owners ... wonder
if there are any differences in the rigs between those imported to
the EU market and those imported to the USA market ?
To date Yaesu seems to have responded well to owner problems, let's
see what they say on this ... (Wonder if THEY view these posts ???)
