Well, I got no reponses to trade my Corsair-2. But, I got a load of
messages wanting to buy it. I have decided that if I cannot trade it, I am
going to keep it and get a nice older Ten-Tec backup rig.
My Corsair just left for the factory again. I got it back from them last
friday, after waiting four weeks, including shipping time, and now they are
getting it back. Actually they did a good job, except they rebuilt the PTO,
and now the tuning control slips badly, and zero beat changes depending on
which direction you turn the tuning control. Also, there is a clicking
feel, like something is hitting the control. I am sure they will fix it as
they generally do very good work.
I have a Yaesu FY-890, which is an awful QSK rig. In fact, I have yet to
find a non-TenTec rig that is good with QSK. The Yaesu clips the dits very
badly at the higher speeds, but works fine on semi-breakin.
So, I am looking for a really clean Argosy or Omni (). If you have one,
equipped for CW, drop me a line. I really need a backup rig capable of good
QSK. It must be in first class condition. I would prefer to hear from
someone within driving distance of San Angelo, Texas.
Best 73 to the TT gang...great folks, both the users and the builders.
