Appreciate you know about band 1 and 2 but it does sound that it’s stuck in band 1. You have to hold the function key longer than you think. If that fails you are welcome to my dat file to try?

Does changing channels move it up through 10m?

No worries I’ll work a way out to send it.

When you say stuck, it won’t go anywhere else, right?

If so read the dat file from the radio, what do you see.

You know there a bit of truck with th software that I found

1. Make sure radio is off and UNPLUGED, with the USB cable plugged into the computer, you’ll have a flying mini usb.
2. Start the software
3. Wait a few seconds plug in the mini usb to the radio
4. Turn on radio.
5. Wait a few seconds
6. Read radio DAT

Let us know if the screen goes to PC and it reads. I’m only new to the DR135 but spend a few hours on it. The above was and still is only way I can get it to read reliably. Where did the out get the cable? A mate of mine bought one from eBay and it would not write. Mine did, he ended up with a replacement and it was fine... Lets elimate the obvious first
