TS-480 Menu 17 and Spot Collector

Don Inbody AD0K

After some experimentation with the TS-480 and how it works with Dxlabs, I found an interesting interaction. Menu item 17 permits the user to set an automatic mode depending on frequency. The default setting is LSB on frequencies below 9.5 MHz and USB above that frequency. The default for Menu 17 is OFF. Turning it on will override any mode command sent to the radio by Spot Collector. While the parameters for automatic mode can be changed by the user, with Menu 17 set to On, those settings will override the Spot Collector command to the rig. For those using the TS-480 with Spot Collector it is recommended leaving Menu 17 OFF.
