Call sign setup for FTM-100

Last Updated: 08/31/2019
Sometimes when programming the radio an error occurs and the radio resets. When this happens, your call sign is lost along with all other settings you have changed on the radio.

To get started again for programming, you will need to enter your call sign (or at least a letter or two) for the radio to even power back on. This is done from the face of the radio.

When the radio powers up, you will receive a message to enter your callsign.
Turn the right [DIAL] to the letter you want and press the right arrow [GM] key to advance to the next letter to enter.

When finished, press the [DISP] key on the radio The radio will cycle off and back on with your entry displayed on the startup screen.

In the programmer, check the Settings screen behind the frequency file that you are using to be sure you call sign is entered. Go to Settings | Radio Menu Settings to find that option.
The Settings screen opens




If the box is blank, type your call sign in here and save this file. Do File | Save from the commands on this screen to make this permanent in the programmer. Then no matter how many frequency files you make, you have this covered.
