        I bought Ten-Tec gear Because I lived close to some powerful
contesting stations(K3TUP,K3LR just for starters), and I can't for the life
of me know what your talking about, I got rid of a Kenwood and a Yeasu that
I owned just for the very reason you are describing. I believe you should
take up the Ten-Tec offer for 30 days and if you don't like it send it back.
Enough said.
