I have an old FM620 UHF radio, but no manual.
Can anyone help me with a basic description of the functions of the front panel controls?
Thanks, Phil

Phil thought the panel is pretty straight forward. Philips are a good set but can't get parts for repair now
- Mute -Squelch switch on the left.
- Scan - Second to left is nominated channel/search 1 or 2 / switchable channel
- Channel selection/ scan 1 or 2 selection
- Mode - right switch is off/on/repeater

The nominated channel is switchable inside with the dip switches
The scan mode works on the mode switch all channels or just the repeater channels. Scan 1/2 is on the basis scan 1 is the priority mode giving priority to your nominated channel 2 with no priority. Priority meaning it scans your nominated channel in between each of the others at the rate of 10 switches a second

If you want a nominated channel as your main channel - that is for repeater channels too, I have the sheet for selection of dip switches. Can scan it and send if you wished -I have the 620 operating instructions too.Regards

What ever you do be careful when you pull the mike plug out of the front panel, the front panel is soldered to the main board and force applied to the plug has a tendency to tear the panel from the main board and it don't work too well after that.

I know cos I did it. a common problem says the repair man.
