Ham radio deluxe dont read frecuency
I used to run HRD before Simon sold the rights to the software to a guy in Florida. He now charges for the software. Since your question has been posted recently, I assume you're running the paid version. I suggest you contact customer support. Alternately, you can also go to QRZ. com and join their forum and ask your question there. The new owner of this software frequents that forum . Good luck!

Memory mode need to open radio frecuncy
one or both of the extension mic has got some connection issues. I have had similar problems. The fix is to get some electrical contact aerosol cleaner and the extension mic and spray in to the connection holes. failing this you will need to remove the knobs and the screw rings beneath the knobs and Arial then prey the pc board out. from the bottom .NOTE make sure the speaker connections hole is clear of the body . then open it up NOT TO MUCH there is a thin tape wire connecting the front ... to exposes the connections giving it a bit more cleaning and you should be good .

My new ICOM ID-5100 VHF/UHF/D-Star radio reboot when keying down at high power only. It will work at low and medium. I checked all the power connections and the voltage is reading a steady 13.9 v.
Sure sounds like a "low volts" reboot due to high current draw.
Are you measuring voltage at the radio itself, after any connector, fuse or circuit breaker? The voltage (at the set) should be slightly different between low and medium power tx. Use a good meter to confirm this.
Is the power supply able to supply the current required at high tx power? Is a current limiter operating? A lead-acid battery in parallel with the PSU might be needed at high power.
At high power setting the radio will probably reset faster than a low power input voltage can be measured with a normal meter, so an oscilloscope might be needed to see the power input voltage as it happens (might be very brief).
Could RF be getting back into the power supply? Does it happen on both bands? Is the SWR good? Is the earth good? How long and how thick are the power wires? Is there any filter on the power supply wires (close to the radio)?
If it's new there will be a warranty if it's a fault in the unit.
Good luck :)
