Remote Mic (HM-59) not working properly

Last Updated: 09/06/2013

The microphone (HM-59) worked before I used ADMS-4B to program the radio.

If I reset the radio, the microphone starts working properly. If I reload
the saved frequencies and settings with ADMS-4B, the microphone stops
working properly...specifically, the "UP" and "DWN" buttons stop working
and the rest of the remote microphone features get screwed up.


The radio was set to "MICKEY" instead of "ELEKEY". I didn't realize
that it froze the up/dwn buttons for everything except CW use. (Menu
item #26)

In the ADMS-4B programmer, Menu Item 26 is controlled by the Mic CW Key checkbox on the CW and ARTS tab of the Settings screen. Be sure this box is unchecked for the ELEKEY selection (checked is MICKEY).
