Hello Gregg

I have just tried a fresh QCX-40 with a fresh 1.03 chip, and the frequency calibration worked fine. Steps:

1) Go to menu 8.13
2) Plug in GPS
3) Wait some seconds until I see satellite lock
4) Turn the rotary encoder one click anticlockwise to 8.12 and wait 6-7 seconds for the Sys Osc cal
5) Turn the rotary encoder one click anticlockwise to 8.11 and wait 6-7 seconds for the Ref Clk cal
6) Unplug GPS
7) Go to menu items 8.5 and 8.6 to check calibrations ran fine

If you have a different sequence of steps and it is failing please can you specify, so I can try that? 

Are you sure your fuse settings are correct (no divide-by-8 fuse etc)?

Has anyone else tried to calibrate their QCX crystal frequencies with GPS with firmware T1.03? It doesn't work for me. I get strange button responses, and the QCX never does update the crystal frequencies properly or at all. I reverted back to T1.02b and the GPS calibration works fine.

Thanks, Hans, for the info on the time display when in split mode with CW decode ON.  It really is just a cosmetic issue.  Not a problem at all.
