I had something similar to that on one recently.  It appeared to be 
working, but when I hooked up the computer to run an APRS Client 
program, I kept getting the power on messages, as if it was doing a 
reset every time it transmitted. I suspected the wall wort wasn't 
delivering enough power all the sudden. I changed the wall wort but 
still received the same message. I did a hard reset and it corrected 
the problem. I do think the original wall wort was a problem. I wish 
I had tried the RESET command (a softer reset) first, because of the 
problems getting all the parameters changed from the default. I am 
pretty sure mine wasn't in transparent mode.
