    You don't even have to use the menu button, pressing the ch knob gets you the menu for
    HICUT.
    NB.
    ECHO.
    10 KHz.

    I have read that these radios have a hidden service menu that should not be altered.
    If you get into the factory settings and change the defaults they can not be recovered.
    This is from the guys over at TM1

    Have a look.

    You're right. Turned hi cut on. It's much quieter.

    This is for the AT-6666. v1 was easy to accidently get into the Service Menu, so in v3 they changed it. The settings appear to be the same for both versions. Ch6 sets the 10.695 and has different settings depending on the mode (FM, USB, LSB).

    Service Menu:

    NOTE: Write initial value down before changes otherwise your going to cry when it’s broken!

    v1 Hold down Menu + Mode and power ON

    v3 Hold down PTT + Menu + Mode and power ON

    You have now entered the Service Menu. Channels 1-3 do nothing. Access channels 4-17 by selecting channel then push on the channel selection knob. Rotate to change value. Exit channel by pushing menu.

    Ch 1-3 na
    Ch 4 freq 498
    Ch 5 frq off
    Ch 6 bfo 0556
    Ch 7 afr 0626
    Ch 8 ctcss 0039
    Ch 9 DC's 0027
    Ch 10 squl36 0810
    Ch 11 squlo1 0013
    Ch 12 sqfa36 0015
    Ch 13 sqfad1 0014
    Ch 14 asqon 0112
    Ch 15 asqoff 0267
    Ch 16 asc 0587
    Ch 17 rssitx 0612
    Ch 18 na
    Cycle power off then on to completely exit this mode.

    It would be interesting to see what settings a v4 ss9900 has.

    Same with the Stryker 955. Makes for a more pleasant sound.

    A worthwhile investment. Mine was sitting in a box for almost a year (Given to me for a repair that took that long. Could not make myself open the box until the repaired TS-940 was back home)

    It is my "go to" now for 10 and 11 meters. (Especially since my Kenwood crapped the bed!)

    Full disclosure-It has not keyed over 20 watts on SSB. Never tried it on AM. Not an AM guy!

    I have bought from 88 radio before, they have a warehouse in California. I got a 5555 from there about 3 years ago. More recently, I bought my second pair of kl302 amps. The first pair was about 2 years ago. I have not seen a better price on these amps anywhere. No complaints so far.

    I have heard a lot of good things about these radios, many people seem to like them really well. I figured I would get one as a present to me for working a bunch of overtime. Can't have a bunch of money sitting around going bad now.

    Great radios. Have two of them. Bought the 2nd one just to have a spare. Works great on 10 & 11 meters.

    This morning I talked to forum member Farmer Brown (Bill) in Texarkana Arkansas. He was on his AT-6666 and I was on one of mine.
