I don't know what a fair price would be.  I'm open to a reasonable offer.

Gentlemen,

Why are we so “offended” by well wishes from persons of ANY background or persuasion?  America was supposed to be the land of the free from its inception.  Some folks just have too much time on their hands just looking for something to be upset about.  Sad they chose this wonderful hobby.  For me a hobby is to help let the steam off that is generated by pressures in the world that I can't control so I can be at peace with even those I don’t agree with. Being mad or offended by something so nice as a well wish indicates a much deeper problem.

Dale, Terry,

I assembled a Hilltopper 20 a couple months ago and had what sounds like the same problem.

Are the functions working in your rigs? Like sidetone, Keyer speed?

THe problem with mine was the A/V chip. 4SQRP ordered new chips and there was a programming problem with the new chips. (They came without the autoloader on them and the program didn't take properly)

Anything controlled by the chip was very slow. Thus the sidetone sounded like hum, the keyer was slow.

Shoot an email to Jim Pruitt at Jpruitt67@...  he is the kitter and has all the answers on this.

I'm retired USAF. The last time I was stationed away from my family, Mount Pinatubo blew up in my back yard. Now THAT was an interesting experience! Got dark as midnight for about half an hour while the ash was coming down.
