    On the band screen I have a "GEN " selection. It's not mentioned in the manual. When I select it it takes me to the 2 mhz range. What is this. 2nd question. When operating portable, usually doing a POTA activation the radio sometimes emits a high pitched beeping. I never think to look at the signal meter to see if it's an external signal, but I don't think it is because it's the identical sound every time. I'm wondering if it's a high temp alarm because I'm usually in the sun.

    There was a firmware update a couple of years ago that adds GEN and 5 to the band screen.
    GEN gives you a place to park a "general coverage" frequency.
    Look up "FT891 firmware update and version identification"
    No idea on the beep.
