I have a Paragon I with the rechargeable battery.  The unit has the FM 
and RS-232 board.  The problem is that the battery will drain if you 
turn it off and leave it off for more than 24 hours.  I would think 
that the 9v. battery would keep it going at least a week.  I don't 
recall it really starting until I added the RS-232 board.  I thought 
the Radio Shack rechargeable 9v had died so I went out and bought a 
new Eveready and the same thing happened.

I don't know if it's the RS-232 but I don't have a schematic to tell 
if the design is a problem.

Does anyone else have this problem with or without RS-232 or do you 
have a fix????

Thanks in Advance
J. B.
