PS When I hit the tuner button per the instructions--got the sound beep---etc---I am thinking I am in bypass-however, when I key my FT 5000, the meter both power and SWR on the MFJ 998 are moving----in bypass mode--the meters should not be registering output or SWR----confusing!
The meters still monitor power and SWR when in bypass. There is a feature that if you press and hold the TUNE button more than about 2 seconds, the TUNE/BYPASS features are reversed. I.e., normally tapping TUNE bypasses the tuner. Holding TUNE for 1/2 second or so starts a tune. But if you hold the TUNE button for about 2-seconds, these are reversed. I.e., tapping the TUNE button starts a tune, and holdiong the TUNE button for 1/2 second bypasses the tuner.
