Darrell may be correct. This may be a common problem 
with the TH-D7A.  I have also seen it on my D7AG.  I have 
to be careful everytime I connect the battery pack to 
check that it has not lost my call sign.  I use it on 
a bicycle, and sometimes a hard bump will loosen a 
battery cell, or connector, and I will find my call 
sign has changed back to default NOCALL.  What is really 
strange is that the radio seems to retain the rest of 
the settings when this happens. 

Kind regards,

Geoffrey, WA4IKQ
