I could copy you on the net last night Johnny but I could not check in with my Piggy. I guess I need to come up with a better antenna for 40 meters. I did hear a lot of QRM last night though.

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
