Hi All,

I'm just setting up my station ready for satellite operation - antenna arrives next week, so I went out and bought a second hand FT736 today.

It looks to be in excellent condition, tx and rx on 2 and 70 seems to be fine, but I'm getting errors whilst trying to use the SAT switch and use it in duplex mode. I have read the manual thouroughly and still get the same errors.

I set the SAT switch to Rx and try to enter a frequency / mode, but the display says ERROR and I can' clear it. The manual says to press REV but that doesnt work.

Have I got a faulty rig or I am doing somethiong wrong?
