// If you have an older design slow-T/R switching speed transceiver you
could try: replacing the 110vdc coil, or replacing the relay. If you
have a newer design, fast-switching transceiver, high-speed switching
wud be gud. (Fig. 7 on my Web site). Total cost is c. $60. The
resultant quietness is worth the effort.

// Other SB-200 owners are likely to see the same problem, Joe.
