//  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.  

good luck
