Bug #8297

kenwood TS-480HX/SAT Writing to memory causes memory channels to be stored in SPLIT mode

Model affected:Kenwood TS-480SAT/HX


While writing data to regular memories in a TS-480HX, the first channel is stored in split mode albeit both frequencies stored are the same so there is no problem with operation (simulates simplex mode!) but the SPLIT indicator is displayed on the control head. Using the same file to program a TS-480SAT, ALL memory channels were stored in split mode! The exception is that one of the channels where I did program a split, it was put in memory correctly. Using the "M>VFO" button function, the info in the memory channel is entered into the A and B memories, which it should do, but it overwrites data already in the A and B memory instead of just overwriting one of the memories if the memory channel were not stored in SPLIT mode. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks, 73,
