    Exactly! The setting 0.6 (not o.06) to 0.8s is good setting for acceptable battery lasting.

    I stand corrected, 0.6 is correct. Thanks! It's a great low cost feature packed radio and has a useful place with my 3-FTM400's, HRI-200 and FT2DR (especially with the new PDN firmware).

    Petr,
    I read your comment about the inability or impossibility to charge while the radio is on so I did some testing because that was a big issue for me. I ran the battery down (didn't take long) and left it on while plugging in the charger. Low and behold, after a little while, it was fully charged! So, I'm happy about that. Overall for the price that I paid while it was on sale, I'm very happy with it.

    I would like to program the memories in this handheld in order to work crossband satellite frequencies.

    I have found the instruction for split function.
    I've learned that it has 2 memory modes, cross band and offset, offset mode does not work for cross band, you must use cross band memory mode.

    The issue is I can't find the memory mode instructions or procedure to enter the required frequencies.

    Thanks in advance
