Well life was good until the power supply blew up 😦
Looks like the Flex 1500 was affected and now drops push-to-talk after a few minutes of being okay. So this is an intermittent problem which is the worst kind to have.
That means I beamed east and worked Australia from the backside of the planet. And that at five watts too 🙂
Then after the power supply blew and before I realized I had an issue with push to talk I worked Gambia and Senegal one right after another. Very cool.
Meanwhile I got a Timewave DSP-9+ digital audio filter for use with the Drake 2B and it is doing a great job.
Also at the same time the postman delivered my MagicBox which is a transmit/receive switch kit. Very cool. And in the same delivery I got a box from Ten Tec to house it.
Before anyone mentions it, I’m installing a 12-volt breakout box into the station as I think a commercial plug shorted and took out the supply.
