I keep hearing that many different types of microchips may be affected with
the Year-2000 glitch.  I've been thinking about this.....would it affect any
of our station equipment?  I know that in a crisis, amateur radio would
perhaps be the only means of communication until things got squared away.
All the solar panels and deep-cycle batteries wouldn't do much good in a
crisis like this, if a critical chip shut down....I'm not trying to be an
alarmist, but it would probably be better to know of a potential problem now
rather than in the middle of straight key night !!

I wonder what Ten-Tec's approach to this is?  Is there anyone out there who
can educate us more ?
