Milt:

Same serial number (already registered) and same everything else. They said it worked fine, but I questioned that.  40+ years of applying power to radios and various commercial equipment has told me to make sure everything is plugged in.  So, not sure what exactly went wrong. 

Just put power to it a few minutes ago and everything lights up just fine. When I had it the 17th of December not even the power switch would work.  Am puzzled by that, but wasn't about to tear into a brand new radio willy-nilly to troubleshoot it.

Next step is to put a real antenna on it, but can't do that until outdoors warms up enough to melt icing.  Have a 25 foot pole which I used to smack the wire antenna which didn't do much good. Still lots of ice on other antennas.  So, this is global warming ???   Maybe I need a flamethrower or a smudge pot ???

We'll see what tomorrow brings ...

73,

Jerry

Did you write down the serial number of the radio you sent back, to compare with this one?

Sunny and 70° in New Orleans, LA. If it gets much colder we have great beignets and coffee to stay warm.

Re: Chat room availability

Mike W4BZM
 

I think the beginning of a new year might be a good time to remind members about the availability of this chat room for real-time coordination of QSOs.

I see quite a few instances on our 070 Club Group email list of “I’m trying 30 meters now”, “Don’t see you”, “Shifting to 15 meters now”, “Saw you and tried to reply but it didn’t work”, etc.  These messages may be useful for the members that receive each e-mail to the group individually and get instant alerts; however, some (many?) of us elect to reduce our e-mail inbox by getting only a daily summary, in which case the “here’s what I’m doing now” messages are overcome by events.   It would be appropriate to put immediate messages in the chat room (only) and reserve the 070 Club Group email list for longer term issues like contest information, questions, new member announcements, etc.

Just a suggestion.
