Re: Don't deal with this person. Does not tell the truth.

Might check that the timer button isn't engaged. Ran into that on my TS-940s from time to time. GL

Need help 7600 and RTTY

Like to use my 7600 on RTTY. Have Signallink but no idea how to hook up or the parameter settings/ I assume you use the rear radios port, and PC USB port. Beyond that, what settings do I need to use, and what parameter settings in MMTTY?

Re: the worst you have ever received?

Air bags used for packing if that is what was used with the transformer, are pretty lame with anything of weight and with pointed edges. Rolling it in heavy bubble wrap would have been better, but not there so don't know. Hope you get it all sorted out.

Re: Tire Kickers

Not a tire kicker but more likely just a jerk. KC5MN posted item for sale, I saw it pop up almost immediately on QRZ. Responded I would buy it, send me the PP info. Nothing. An hour or so later, replied again, both to contact sender on the post and via his Email. No response. 3rd time, likewise, the...

Re: Bret Westfield - SCAMMER off Facebook

Yeah, this meth head and company are real POS. Took down the FB page, ad removed, etc. Totally reflects an honest guy....what a freak sex offender scum bag. Has a real long rap sheet and surprised he gets on FB with a S Offender record.
Anyway, still pressing for my funds.

Re: Bret Westfield - SCAMMER off Facebook

I guarantee, FB would do the right thing since the payment went thru their service, PP won't since the payment originated there and then to FB. Both point in the same direction back to each other but neither will take steps to refund or go after this wire fraud individual. Not their problem. Conside...

I have been in touch with Officer McDonald of the Bucyrus PD. He went and visited him, and of course, played stupid about it. I have the receipt which shows funds transfer.

WD4X first told me he would email me a return label, then would mail me a label, then just had Fed Ex show up. I got no paperwork, no documentation, NADA. ...
