Hi all.
Hoping someone can explain this please. I read an online article saying that about once a year you should do a Relay Clean. Basically hold in 3 buttons then turn on the rig. It does not however explain what it does and why you should do it.
Is it something that is necessary to do or should I just ignore it? Advice appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Dale,

A quick Google and it looks as though there is indeed a function to clean the relays.

https://www.reddit.com/r/amateurradio/comments/46uml8/strange_behaviour_from_radio/

Hope it's of some use.

Yes Chris, there's some really knowledgeable and helpful guys on here, that's why I'm always reading and learning things.
Thanks Graeme, that's interesting. I never remember it being so complicated back in the 80's, I've so much more to learn and look forward to, as luckily I enjoy learning more about my hobby.
Cheers guys.
