Default Programming trouble: id-5100 for hotspot

I tried programming my info for a jumbospot into my ID-5100 and once I save it the entry is marked ďskipĒ and no matter what I do I canít unskip it.

Anyone have any tips? Iíve done just about everything including a reset to factory settings and it just will not let me use that memory entry. The only way to get it to not show ďskipĒ is to set it as DV simplex but that wonít work with the hotspot.

Anyone?

Try setting the TX offset to either + or -, but manually enter the offset value to 0.
That was the trick I had to find out about with an IC-92AD, I believe it works for any radio.

Iíll give this a try! Currently have it set to ďnoneĒ with the usual 5.000. Iíll turn it on and set it to 0 to see what happens. Thanks!

I assume you're using some brand of radio programming software...? I use RT Systems. I'm not sure you can force 0 offset using front panel programming. I know you can with RT Systems, and I THINK you can with Icom's software.

I have a hotspot and I could use the 0 offset trick with both the IC-92AD and a Kenwood TH-D74a, via the RT software.

Wanted to report back that setting a shift with a 0 value did the trick. Thanks!

Also, I was able to input the 0 from the radio itself, no programming software needed.
