FT891 friver issue - M-TUNE
« on: May 02, 2018, 12:10:40 am »
When M-Tune button is pushed, then immediately server dropdown. So, soulution is not allow this button but i think if it can work? Because TUNE button don't allow me to start tune process on external MFJ ATU.

The M-Tune button should first reduce the power, switch to a constant carrier mode, put the radio into transmit and observe the SWR. When there is a good SWR, it should reverse everything

I see where the M-Tune would fail on the FT-891. It wasn't switching to a constant carrier mode properly.

I will let you know when there is a new installer available.

The M-Tune button should be working on the FT-891 now. The scale on the RF Gain control has been changed to match the radio's CAT command (0 to 30)
