OK. Maybe I should just call V1 and try to get them to put it online...
Anyways, it's nothing terribly exciting, but:
To enter programming mode: turn on V1 while holding control knob until all
the lights come on (approx 5 seconds).
To exit: turn it off and back on.
Press the knob to move through the selections (indicated in bogey counter);
hold it for a few seconds to change the selection (indicated by ahead/behind
arrows - note that 'ahead' is the default for all of them.)
The first thing (cycling through 4 numbers) is the software version. The
latest version is 2.695. Note that you have to have version 2.680 or greater
for user programmability to work. Next you have the settings. Most of them
are listed as 'unused' or are undocumented... hmmmm...
The first 4 can be used to _completely_ disable detection on each individual
band, which doesn't sound like a very smart thing to do :). Ahead is enabled,
Behind is disabled:
1 X Band
2 K Band
3 Ka Band
These rest are somewhat self-explanatory, though I can't say I'm sure exactly
what they do. The wording is straight from the FAX:
5 Ka bargraph Ahead Normal Ka bargraph emphasis
Behind Weak Ka signals seem stronger
6 Ka falsing Ahead Normal Ka false alarm suppression
Behind Reduced Ka false alarm suppression
8 Muting Ahead Normal reduced volume muting
Behind Complete silence when muted
A Bogey Lock Tone Ahead Normal loud bogey lock tone when muted
Behind Soft bogey lock tone when muted
The rest (B-H) are all listed as 'unused', and the stuff you get when you
go past that is not documented.
