Thanks for the response, but that's not the issue here. K3s tuner in bypass.
With tuner in bypass, and "TUNE" held down, SWR on K3s is 3.6. Repeat with KAT500 in Manual mode, the SWR reading on K3s is 12.6:1 or higher. Repeat in AUTO Mode, and SWR goes to 99.9:1 because the KAT500 breaks the signal path because it "sees" >10:1 and ostensibly is faulting though the Fault light does not come on. 73, ______________________ Clay Autery, KY5G MONTAC Enterprises (318) 518-1389 On 8/8/2017 11:29 AM, Dick Dievendorff wrote: > The ATU blinks the MODE LED when a tune has been started, but not enough RF > is arriving from the exciter to proceed.
