What a frustrating evening - last night I failed to work 3Y0X on 30m along
with VQ9, 6W and FH on 160m. I love this hobby...but I hope I have more luck
Now I don't want to sound like a bad workman who blames his tools but I have
noticed a few glitches in my Omni VI. I'd appreciate any advice before I
send my Omni back to TT for an overhaul.
Glitch 1 - on receive, the tone of the received cw signals jumps by a few
hundred Hz, the display remains quite steady. Some sort of stability problem
Glitch 2 - on receive again, and particularly following switching on, the
audio is accompanied by lots of electrical/static crashing noise (S4 - S5). I
checked last nights dx signals on my Corsair II and Drake TR7, no noise, its
inside the Omni VI.
Any ideas ? Has anyone encountered these problems before. Due to the
intermittent nature of the problems I would appreciate any adivce - it would
bundle to send my radio across the pond for a service.
Thanks, Peter - G4PUQ
PS I'm not attributing my bad luck last night to my radios.
