Out of contest !


Jerry N9AVY
 


Looks like I'm out of TDW for the count.
 
Hooked up FT-1000 MP which just came back from Burghardt in South Dakota and nothing works.  Not one button on the radio... can't change bands, modes, filters, etc.  Plus 14070 has bars every KHz all across the waterfall !  Tried the manual for programming and nothing there worked.
 
Spent quite a few bucks getting it repaired.  They will get an email on Monday expressing my displeasure.
 
Can't go back to TS-680S because few can hear me a that because I'm transmitting off frequency.
 
I'm done for this contest.

BUMMMMMM-ER Jerry!  Sorry to hear of your troubles.  Saw you once or twice and tried to call you but nada.  Good luck with your call on Monday.  They didn't keep that "super sensitivity" one and ship you the wrong one by mistake did they?  Better check the serial number!  Let us know what happens.

Bummer Dude. 
Dunno what up with the 680 but it was Shifting offsets back and forth.  Then
It settled down enough for me to work you.
Good luck.

Don't feel too bad Jerry... it's going around.

I took Friday off to take care of some projects that were piling up, one of which was programming a spare link radio for my repeater.  Found out right away that my trust bench power supply was only putting out 2.5 VDC; got that swapped out and then one of my service monitors would not power on.  Spent the day building the ESR meter that had been sitting on my bench since Christmas so I could troubleshoot.  The Astron went in the trash and the service monitor is now awaiting parts.  That Astron was hit by lightning a few years ago and never has been quite right since.  

Hopefully Burghardt will pull a rabbit out of their hat for you on Monday.

73,

Mike
