    Any update on this issue? I'm seeing the same behavior and I've updated to the latest version of the firmware.

    I read the title and even before opening the thread though "The op must have an FTdx3000". Called it!!

    Yes, my new FTdx3000 does the same thing. I found it the same way, trying to tune into that strong signal but it kept moving. The bandscope on the 3000 is nothing to write home about. If it is really important to an op, they won't be happy with this rig.

    So my solution is simple. I use the bandscope only a little. I treat it as more of a novelty item rather than a core feature and prefer to just tune the band.

    Weird problem, I apparently never noticed it when I had a 3000. But I used a sdrplay connected to the IF output to use HDSDR software for a pan adapter. I never used the pandapter in the radio. I wonder if it shows up on the IF output for others.

    I see something similar on my FT-920 on an external panadapter. It has absolutely zero effect on anything so I don't worry about it.

    If you decide that you can't tolerate this, I'll take that FTDX-3000 off your hands for a couple hundred bucks. :D
