I'm not sure what you mean, about an alarm.

Previous Concertone units had an alarm feature built into the clock function. My apologies, I see it is not mentioned in the new Gen 3 manual, but may still be there.

Does the radio play a particular station when it starts up (like XM radio or weather radio?)

In any case, hold the "MODE" button in for 10 seconds to reboot the radio and return it to the factory default settings.

That should clear anything that got into the memory that is causing the seemingly random start ups.

I will try that, the next time I get in the camper. We just bought the fw last Oct. and the first time the radio came on was a few days after winter storage. When it does come on, it is on the last station we had it on. I thought before that it might be some frequency that my 2014 silverado was giving off, but I could not prove it.

If not the "auto-on" feature of an internal alarm clock, I am stumped as well. If it was the weather warning channel, it could have been an alert but the radio needs to be on for that to happen.

I thought the XM radio might also be "waking up" the Gen 3, but if it is a radio station, then I am at a loss.

Thank you for picking your brain. Someday, if I find out what is causing this crazy thing too happen, I will let you know.

I had thought maybe it was automatically coming on as power got restored (I had an old alarm clock that did that) but since it's coming on the same station, I don't think that's possible. If there was a power loss (so it could be restored) that should also clear any memory of the last station.

Mine always powers up to the last station and mode selected when it was powered off (typically the XM radio). It does not turn on by itself though; that is a new one.

Could the power button be stuck "ON"?

My GT-2.0 loses it's memory when the power is lost (I.e. I hit the battery disconnect). Once power is restored, (I.e. Battery hooked back up) the radio starts down at the beginning of the band, 87.9.

A stuck power button should actually be cycling his radio on/off, not just on if it's physically stuck. The most likely culprit is the remote, specifically something bumping the remote. Try removing the remote from the rig and then seeing if it's still reoccurring.

The fw is parked on the side of the house, so there isn't any movement of unit.

Ah. My battery is never disconnected so even "off" there is clock power.
Thanks about the on/off feedback. Would a low battery in the remote make it unreliable?
