I just had the coolest QSO!  It was a 15-minute PSK31 exchange with a 
young fella in Wisconsin. 

So what?  Well, I'm at my office and my radio is ten miles away at 
home.  I realize this isn't earth-shattering technology, but it was 
great fun for me the first time.  Y'see, I linked my office computer 
with my home computer (and thus my Pegasus) with "Log Me In" remote 
control software via the Internet.  "Log Me In" (www.logmein.com) works 
just like "Go To My PC" software with one essential difference -- it's 

Before investing in payware such as "Go To My PC" I decided to use the 
"Log Me In" program to see if the remote control scheme would work.  As 
it happens, it does -- perfectly. 

Now I can play radio during my lunch and coffee breaks.  Since, 
according to financial advisors, I won't be able to retire until I'm 
about 106, this is good news.  (Of course, if I spend too much time in 
QSO here at the office, I'll be retiring early -- ready or not).

As for our buddy with the incorrigible Corsair -- I had a similar 
situation with a less-than-promised Corsair I recently.  I sent it to 
Ten Tec.  Two weeks and a couple of hundred dollars later, I got back a 
good-as-new (performance-wise, anyway) radio that I'm very fond of.  
Even with the added cost of repairs, it still cost a lot less than a new 
radio of equal performance.  Now, two hundred dollars sounds like a lot 
for the repair, but the guys in Sevierville rebuilt the PTO, found two 
burnt circuit board traces and the faulty components that caused them 
and did a bit of rewiring to correct the previous owner's "upgrade" that 
nearly killed the radio.  Plus -- the Corsair came back fully 
realigned.  I consider it a decent investment.
