FTM-500 - Transfer starts on its own before radio is ready

Modified on Fri, Jun 21 at 11:22 AM

On the FTM-500 (and probably several other of the FTM radios), Communications | Get data from radio will begin data transfer immediately when OK is clicked on the Get Data from screen before the last three steps are completed whenmenu item number 69 (Com Port)  Output is set to anything but Off.    

The options for this setting are GPS Out, Packet, and Waypoint.  Any of the three other than Off cause data to be sent through the cable at all times. using the same lines that are required for programming. 

Resolution is to set menu item 69 to Off and try the Communications process of the Programmer again.
