Icom m710 trouble - need assistance
I've just replaced my old Icom m700 with a new-to-me Icom m710 with PCT-III modem with my old AT-120 tuner. Everything appears to be connected fine on the back of the radio but when I turn it on, it continues flashing 'TUNE' on the screen and will not receive or transmit.
When I press the Tune button, nothing happens. I have adjusted the settings to AT-120 and 'auto tune.' Am I missing something in the programming? Shouldn't I be able to receive regardless of the tuner (if that is a problem)?
Also, it will not let me program in any stations or change groups. Next to the flasking 'TUNE" it says WWV 2 and then dispalys 2.5000 when I press the CH/freq button.
Can anyone point me in a direction for troubleshooting? I'm in Chile and communicating this to a radio tech will be very difficult for me and my poor Spanish skills.
