Hello all,

Are there any current owners of a Delta II (or Argonaut II) on the list ? I
have a question regarding the operation of the "REV" function when operating
split. On my unit, when operating split, if I switch between VFO A and VFO B
(on the same band) all sounds normal. But if I press the REV button to
monitor the opposite VFO, the frequency is displayed correctly but the audio
is 700 Hz too low. In other words, you cannot hear the other station on the
other VFO. I must hold the REV button and tune up 700 Hz to hear the signal.
Then when I switch between VFO and VFO B, the second VFO is now 700 Hz too

So, by using the REV function, the control circuitry is not adding the 700
Hz offset. Before I dig deeper looking for a problem, I'm asking if another
Delta II owner can confirm that their unit operates differently than mine.
Thanks in advance.
