    Went to use my radio and set it up like I always do, but this time when I did and hit transmit (PTT) the power meter showed no LEDs and it did have PO on the far left.

    I have no idea what the issue is. Any ideas?

    Mic switch is kaput? Have you tried switching it into vox mode and trying that?

    [edit] not familiar with the unit, so not sure what you mean by "PO". Maybe that is an indicator that the PTT circuit is closed (and thus negating my suggestion)? What mode are you in?

    Make sure the MOX button is not pushed in.

    If it is pushed in on radio power up, Transmit is locked out.

    Good Luck.

    What mode are you in? Is the Transmit indicator on when you press the PTT?

    Even if the Transmit indicator is on, in the SSB mode (USB or LSB), there should be no power output, until you talk into the microphone. Try switching to the FM or AM mode to test for output.
