Re the QSK probs with amps some are having, FWIW, I recall having some kind
of QSK amp keying loop weirdness problem a couple of years ago (can't
clearly recall what it was--the amp either didn't key, or hung or something
like that) and it turned out the problem was somehow related to my use of a
really long keying cable. I used a 10 or 20 foot long phono cable--the kind
RS sells with the black jacket that costs around 3 dollars with the phono
plugs on the ends, and when I switched to a much shorter cable, around 5
feet or so, the problem went away. The continuity of the long cable was
fine--no shorts; no opens. Of course with the Orion QSK thing it sounds
like a rig control problem but if you ever encounter anything odd with the
amp keying and you have real long key lines try shortening them.
