Further Comments on 9-1 Menus The 9.x setting in the menu of the MP and
the Mark V are not mentioned in
the Operating Manual, Technical Overview or Technical Supplement.
However the Technical Supplement is very useful to learn more about your
I found some details of the "hidden" menu:
Power off the MP. Hold down FAST, LOCK and ENT (on the keypad) while
powering on the MP. Then, holding down FAST and ENT to enter the menus,
including the extended 9.x menus.
I advise you to be very careful with some of the menus, e.g. 9-0 and
9-2. Always write down the standard settings, before you change them!
First know what you are doing and what purpose you have changing the
Menu's 9-0 Collins filter (scrolling menu, be careful to change this).
Menu's 9-1 IF Gain amplifiers (e.g. to be used with the INRAD
Menu's 9-2 TX IF Gain amplifiers (scrolling menu, be careful to change
Menu's 9-5 CPU version (e.g. 2.17) and CPU self check (MP flashes like a
Menu's 9-6 Linear graph indicator.
Menu's 9-7 Setting to transmit the MP for so long and receive for so
long in any mode or it will change mode automatically (handy for e.g.
Menu's 9-8 Factory date of production; this can be changed manually! The
serial number of your MP contains some information of the production
date too. For example 0G350136 means 0 = the year 2000, G = the 7th
month of the year (July), 50136 the actual serial number, while menu 9-8
shows 01021603! Both this information is very practical when you buy a
second hand MP. I am not sure, but I think that 9-8 shows the production
date of the software while the serial number shows the production date
of the hardware.
Menu's 9-9 Extended TX frequencies. E.g. turn the MAIN VFO counter
clockwise till you find “GEn”. For who uses his transceiver as a signal
generator. I advise to use low power and to avoid outdoor antennas.
Don't forget to press the ENT switch to end the cycles. Please use this
information at your own risk.
