Here is what you can do to your nice Alinco DJ-V5T Radio!
There are a few nifty tricks to make some operating adjustments to the Alinco DJ V5T. Below you will see what you need to do to make some operational adjustments that do not require opening the radio at all. All operational adjustments are readily made by an access code on the keypad. Before performing these adjustments please make sure you write down every setting code indicated in the LCD display area when preparing to adjust so you can restore it back factory defaults if you need to.
You can access the radio operational adjustment mode by doing the following:
1: With the radio turned on press the Func-Lock button for one second until radio is in keylock mode.
Enter this code: 490217
You will notice it will immediately advance into onboard adjustment mode, from here you can make the following adjustments. When making these adjustments use the up/down butons lable * and # on the keypad. Using these keypads will select your different adjustment options. Then once you are at an option you would like to adjust just turn the tuning dial to change values up or down.
