ft-897 batt lights ?

Post by nordhavn » 20 Aug 2017, 19:31

I've just noticed that the both batt lights come on when I transmit . Is this normal? I'm sure it didn't do it before .

No cant remember mine doing that to be honest. Not used it in a while but deffo cant remember them lighting up when transmitting. Maybe you've altered something in the menu settings by mistake?
