I got into Initial Set mode to program memory channel names and now I can't get out of it. Tried power off/on, tried ENT key, made sure key lock is off.
Contacted ICOM Tech Support, but no reply.
Anyone know how to get it unstuck without a total reset? I really don't want to lose 4 hours worth of programming.

Belay my last. For anyone else, selecting WX from VFO/MR/CALL, then hitting ENT gets out.

I spoke too soon. With assigned alpha-numeric labels assigned to memory channels and displayed (an option), pressing [FUNC] then [SET] prompts to change the first character of the label. That indicates that the unit is still in Initial Set mode. (?)
I may have to break down and buy the PC programming software and cable.  Sad

Mea maxima culpa. Major stupid attack. All is well. I simply misunderstood the [FUNC] [SET] sequence when a channel name is displayed. Call me a dork. I deserve it.  Embarrassed
