Hi Joe,

Sorry for the problems on the net.  For some reason my TX-2000 would
jump from SSB to CW.  The problem seems to be RF feedback related. It
was also frequency sensitive.  When I reduced my power and mover
slightly off 14.245 it was reduced or went away.

I wanted to mention on the net that I will be available over the next
few weeks for skeds as the college and business will be shut down most
of this period.  I am interested in skeds (CW and/or JT44) on 70 cm with
JH0WJF and JA8ERE.  I think there was another new JA as well.  Also
skeds with SM0IOT and OH4LA, if you have a contact for any of these
stations.  On 1296 I would like to run with K7XQ.

Tnx & 73, Al - K2UYH
