I just got licensed and I bought the KG-UV6D as my first transceiver. I think it might be broken though.
I have read through the manual and tried google searching with no luck, so I am
asking you guys for help.
Right now I am
just trying to get it to change frequency. All I have to select from are 2 preset frequencys.
I'm reading the manual and it is telling me the key presses to do things, like to change its
working mode (I think that's what I want to get me out of the preset mode and let me scan channels) it says, In standby, press Menu + S/D
But it does absolutely nothing. In fact all of the key shortcuts for various functions do nothing!
I notice it says, "In standby mode" and I'm not sure what it means about that (nothing in the manual).
I also can't get the programming cable to work. I made sure it was set to the right COM port, have the right drivers installed,
the cable is firmly seated in the socket, and when I go to read from radio I get "Failed connection
" every time!
So yeah I think my HT
might be broken.
Extremely upsetting! I want to get on the air.
