I also enjoyed the Banner once again this month!  Looking forward to Brutus - most likely going to make it more than a day trip this year.  Will definately bring the 817 along for the ride this year!  Looking forward to seeing you guys!

Re: Hey I made the 40 meter net

ge Paul Gus to hear you.
I don't think they have a reset. Just power down cold and then cycle all the switches after you turn it back on?..
You may have to re seat the processor, but I bet not.
Try these and see how it goes.
Take care 72

Hi,

Got my 7122 rocks and am wondering if I need to retune everything or if the circuits are broad enough to cover both that frequency and the original 7030.

I would like to mount both sets and switch between them. 

Is that a good idea?

Dave, great job. I did 1000 mi/watt earlier this year with YU5A, Belgrade, Serbia. It's cool to do 1000 mi/watt on SSB.
