To charge a battery through the jack, the supply voltage must be at least
2 volts higher than the nominal battery voltage: 18 Hours for FNB-27.

Battery below 6.5 volts: icon on LCD. Worst: it blink.

Beeper on/off: FM --> 2 --> FM --> 2

LOCK dial knob: FM --> 0 --> 5

1 MHz steps: FM --> ^ or dial

RPT offset: FM --> 0 --> 6

Memory storage: QRG (VFO) --> hold FM (after dial set mem number) --> FM

Memory separate TX QRG: QRG (VFO) --> hold PTT + FM

Memory tuning: MR acts like VFO (to store other QRG too).

Memory mask: hold FM --> MR;

Unmask: --> hold FM, select with dial --> MR (NOT FM!)

Scan subband: memory QRGs Low and Up --> MR --> ^

Scan pause mode: FM --> 7 --> FM (7)

DTMF: FM --> PAGE memory (dial) 0 & 7 read only. 1 ur personal ID

DTMF: to RX ID, FM --> PAGE --> FM (then select mem) --> FM (on/off)

DTMF: display: FM --> 0 --> 4

PAGING: my 3 ID, "*", 3 ur ID. FM --> 0 --> 8: RING instead Squelch open

DTMF delay: FM --> 0 --> 1 (450/750 ms)

Tel DTMF store: FM --> CALL, hold FM (select memory number via KEY) -->
                       hold FM, key. To DEL : PTT; To terminate: CALL
                       To replay: press mem  number. CALL returns to QRG
                       To TX: press the number of the DTMF memory

DTMF: FM --> 0 --> FM --> 1: to hold TX 2 seconds every number:
                      --> 3: own tone sequence (= mem 0) for A.P.Off
                      --> 5: DTMF instead single-tones for keys
                      --> 6: fast DTMF playback (10/7.5 digits/sec
                      --> 4: disable DTMF keypad (9: rows, 8: columns)

Resetting the CPU: hold MR + VFO + turn TRX on

Auto Power Off: FM --> 0 --> 3. Switch TRX off and back on for use

SAVER: RX off 3 secs after squelch close (30 ms on); 5 = 1000 ms sleep
