PMS Memories

The FT-8800 has 20 sets of PMS memory channels; 10 for the left-hand side and 10 for the right-hand side. This feature allows you to set sub-band limits for either scanning or manual VFO operation.

The system operates by have pairs of memories labelled L1 and U1 through L10 and U10 on each side of the transceiver. The Lnn memory defines the lower limit of the range, and the Unn memory defines the upper limit.

When you have an image loaded, click on the PMS tab to show the memories:

To add a new lower/upper pair, click in the lower frequency cell of the desired memory pair and enter the frequency. Now do the same for the upper frequency.

Now make any changes to the other settings in the memories. 

When starting PMS mode, if you select the lower memory before pressing the [SCN] button you will get the attributes of the Lnn memory applied. If you select the upper memory then the attributes of the Unn memory are applied instead. So you could, for example,  have the lower frequency set for FM, and the upper set for FMN and so on.

To delete a PMS memory pair left-click on either the lower or upper frequency of the pair to be deleted, then right-click anywhere in the row of the pair to be deleted and choose the 'Delete PMS memory pair' command in the pop-up menu.
