The issue has been fixed. The seller left the radio programmed before selling it, so it was in the WIRES-X mode, a mode I'm not familiar with since I've been off the air for several years due to CC&R's. Holding down two specific buttons while turning the radio on cleared the issue and set it back to normal operations. Own KG7OXU many apologies.
Good to hear that you got it going. I think that a factory reset is a good idea on a 'new' to you radio.
It's a fresh start, can manipulate the settings to your own individual preferences.
The used FM mobiles I've looked at didn't offer a significant cost savings over new. The higher priced HF gear might offer a worthwhile savings.
