    First I am new to doing things on my radio. I wanted to add a second filter to my 706 have the the stabdard FL-272 and I added the FL 223 a while back, I got a FL-103 reciently and put it in and the radio would not work at all, pulled the filter out to find that it had no plastic shield on it . when out the radio worked as it has before putting the filter in.

    My question is is the plastic ground shield not on the filter or could it be a bad filter it is an older filter?

    In INITIAL SET MODE, No. 19 & 20, you have to tell the 706 what filters have been installed. Did you do that?

    YES I did same as when I installed the FL-223 and it worked.
