SK2 while the power / volume control

Post by Fecskebeka » Tue Oct 12, 2021 7:25 am

Have a nice day!

"If button SK2 is held in while the power / volume control is turned off, and with suspend mode enabled, the radio will do a full power off, and the realtime clock will not be maintained. If suspend mode is not enabled, holding SK2 while the power / volume control is turned off, will enter suspend mode."

"Resetting the Settings
The radio can also be set to the default settings by holding the Blue (SK2) key while turning on the radio."

Unfortunately, I was able to change the order several times during the on and off. In addition to Sk2.
I don't know how many of you have ever been like this?

Or what should I press if I don't want to reset.
There is only "Ok".

Can the reset button be moved elsewhere?
For example, top orange button.

Maybe there is no such feature yet.

Greeting!

Hi,
Unfortunate thing.
You will think of me for that at least once again! :) ;)
Thanks!

You don't need to hold the button for anything related to Suspend while turning the radio on, and if you do for some reason by accident, just turn it back off. I do wonder why there isn't a cancel action on the screen, but none the less I'm confused why you're holding SK2 here at all while turning it on, just leaving it held down while you power off and back on to test Suspend?

Hi,
  • If Suspend is ON, pressing SK2 while powering off will really turn off the radio, temporarily disabling suspend (hence, you lose the date/time).
  • If Suspend is OFF, pressing SK2 while powering off will temporarily enable the suspend mode (hence you will keep the date/time).
  • If you turn on the radio with SK2 held down, you clear the settings.
The more common case is #2, for people using the Satellite feature.
Enable suspend mode, and when you want to disable it, because you know the transceiver will remain off for a long time and you want to save the battery juice.
And if you want to change the Suspend mode value, without diving the options menu, define a quick key to enable/disable it.

But don't expect us to add a screen to confirm the setting reset, as its goal is to solve, sometimes, some tricky situations.


Cheers.

Okay, Okay!

Accidentally I have been this way several times so far.
That is why I asked the question, did this case happen to anyone else?
I just indicated that I did not feel lucky about the situation.

Don't make it a big deal! ;)

Thanks!

Random reflex at power on.
I have never used the reset function before.
Then it happened to me several times.
Um ... Let's see how others deal with it when used.
