I've found a 'hidden RU mode' on my UNMODIFIED President McKinley EU - It shows that there may be some hidden goodies in this radio just waiting to be found.....

Basically the same as export mode but without the wire cutting and jumper moving. In the service manual there are separate pots to adjust for setting the power levels for RU mode, the same as you adjust for the high power settings for export mode.

Mind you what I haven't been able to find out is what the magic key presses are to enable RU mode.

Took about 5 mins to find it but doesn't really do much, the radio appears to be stuck on mid band only.

I still think there's a full engineering menu hidden in there somewhere.....
