Re: Tune button

Norm Stewart

Assuming you have the 993 interface cable in the 7k 4 pin tuner port,  there does seem to be a problem with some radios - my 993 tuner worked fine with a 706, but the same cable did not work with the 706MKIIg or the 7000.  I assume that the start line is not being pulled low enough by the radio to trigger the tuning. I put an external push button to momentarily ground  the start line, and all works as expected with both of the newer radios.

my 7000 is connected to the radio port of a MFJ-993B tuner.
Unfortunately, the tune button on the 7000 does not trigger the low power keying of the transmitter. The TUNE message on the display lights up for a moment but then goes out immediatly afterwards.
Note that the 993B tunes up well when I manually set low power and RTTY mode and push the PTT.
I need your help!
Thank you.
