v Selector’s action

The HM-162E has a selector dial, which works various functions.

Each pushing [VOL/SQL] changes [SELECTOR]’s action.

Selector status indicator shows “[VOL],” “[SQL]” or “[DIAL]” when [SELECTOR] functions as an audio volume, squelch controller or channel selector, respectively.

Pushing [DIAL] changes [SELECTOR]’s action to channel selector.

“[DIAL]” appears.

Pushing [ENT] or [CLR] returns [SELECTOR]’s action to the audio volume when “[SQL]” or “[DIAL]” is indicated on the display.

Even if [ENT] or [CLR] hasn’t been pushed, [SELECTOR]’s action returns to the audio volume automatically after 5 sec. of inactivity.

After these instructions describe [SELECTOR] as follow: [SELECTOR VOL] : Functions as the audio volume. [SELECTOR SQL] : Functions as the squelch controller. [SELECTOR DIAL]: Functions as the channel selector. [SELECTOR] : Functions as the any other selector

or controller.
