I’ma gonna put this here in the hope it might help someone. As it’s just driven me battey for a while.
I was trying to read from my Yaesu VX-7R. I put it into CLONE mode but pressing BAND was doing nothing; just turning on the back light. Turned out that I had the key lock on the radio and had to take that off. So, turn the radio on normally, turn off the key-lock with a long press on the ‘Internet/TX PO/LK’ key in the bottom left, then power-off and retry clone mode.
