    Hi All,
    Had this 590 since December of 2015 and rarely use 6M.
    When I tune around I hear birdies on 50.148, 50.117, 50.087 and 50.056 and a few others here and there, ranging from S4 to S1.
    Anyone else take notice to this? Yes, their there w/o the antenna connected.
    I believe they've always been there but I never paid much attention to them, thinking it was normal!
    Thanks, Ken

    Sometimes Kenwood will list known birdies in the manual, they may also claim these are a feature, not a bug. ;)
