I've found a 'hidden RU mode' on my UNMODIFIED President McKinley EU - It shows that there may be some hidden goodies in this radio just waiting to be found.....

Basically the same as export mode but without the wire cutting and jumper moving. In the service manual there are separate pots to adjust for setting the power levels for RU mode, the same as you adjust for the high power settings for export mode.

Mind you what I haven't been able to find out is what the magic key presses are to enable RU mode.

Took about 5 mins to find it but doesn't really do much, the radio appears to be stuck on mid band only.

I still think there's a full engineering menu hidden in there somewhere.....

I'm a complete novice when it comes to the new rigs so if im barking up the wrong tree then  please ignore the following President McKinley EU 'Hidden RU Mode' 1f601   
I discovered this RU mode myself a last week after watching a video on Youtube about entering a hidden "President Martin" factory service menu, see https://youtu.be/fGEnfHmTUfc  . I used the same method on my McKinley and up popped the RU. I mentioned it to the guy who posted the video and he assured me that there are no hidden service menus on the McKinley as everything is done on the board. After watching your own video I noticed the 5kHz drop then remembered a chart I read earlier this year of frequency allocations for Russian CB. For the life of me I cant find that chart again BUT I did read in another reply post a moment ago by The Doctor where he mentions the old Soviet zero channels. 
So I'm assuming the RU stands for RUSSIA and guessing this is their band selection. Don't they use a higher power output than the rest of us? Could this be why its hidden away from the rest of the band selection? Oh I do love a good mystery. President McKinley EU 'Hidden RU Mode' 1f604
