great price. So, now run one on SSB and the other on Digital -

Shhh! Don't tell XYL that it might be just a battery. Will

You may be correct in assessing the problem. THe TS-570 does
have a battery and my best guess would be that is the problem.
Several years ago I had similar problem with my TS-850SAT and
it went screwy.
Replacing battery solved the problem. There a several
instructions and videos on the net about replacing TS-570
battery. This may very well be a quick fix !
Some Kenwoods (my TS690S for example) have a mercury
battery to keep memory alive. Mine is a CR2430, about
the size of a US quarter, with solder tabs, located
d-e--e---p behind front panel. Been several years
since I did a lobotomy, but, full instruction on the
