    I have two of these; one works fine but the other has a problem with the A band VFO in that CTCSS is permanently enabled. Try as I might, I cannot disable it. The menu functions (25,26,27) which set the tones does not display the OFF option, but all the tone frequencies are available. In desperation, I did a full reset, but the problem didn't go away.

    Many times when the Off function is not available, It is because it is already off.

    Is there a On selection ?

    Thanks for the reply. However, there is neither ON or OFF option available and the A band is locked in ON. I can change tones, but not remove them completely. I'm not sure if the full reset worked either, as despite taking a long time, nothing seemed to have changed afterwards and all the memory channels were still intact. The B band VFO works normally and offers ON/OFF CTCSS options as expected.

    OK.

    You may have to put the radio in "Dial Mode" to change the settings.

    Then save the settings to memory. I do not own that radio for testing. :(

    Good Luck.

    Thanks for your interest. Some good news: I have discussed the problem with the supplier of the radio and despite being well out of warranty, they have offered to provide me with a replacement.
    In the meantime, I will have another go at reset.
