My radio arrived today. I will get it programmed up tomorrow and check the audio and deviation settings on the service monitor. Want to see what it is going to take to remote the control head if possible, that is the only way it will fit into the truck. Hopefully it does not exhibit the same issue as yours did

Good to see, Steve, Mike, Doug, and Bill at Stanwood today, Janet drove me, backside was a bit sore late this afternoon, but it is getting better.
