    Is there any way to turn the APO off in this radio? I see nothing in the manual and I only see the three time settings in the menu, 60, 120, and 180. The reason I ask is because there is an APO icon on the display as if to indicate that APO is active and therefore if it were possible to deactivate the APO feature, the APO icon would turn off. Also, I hate that the radio shuts itself off after three hours if I'm not there to key it up every so often.

    The manual does have the information in it. Not an easy find but it's there.
    Press F for 1 second then press the MHz and that should allow you to toggle between APO on and APO off.

    Hope this helps
