Dale - I have never seen a post on this reflector complaining about the "six 
pack" - that being said, I can tell you that I have had intermittent relay 
closure problems.  This has been a rare occurrence from the beginning, even 
though my relay box is in an air conditioned shack.  It seemed to happen 
when I "soft switched" the knob instead of turning the knob with more gusto. 
I now use it with the Bandmaster and have never had a problem since.  I 
never blew an amp because I always listen first before transmitting - if I 
don't hear any signal, I don't transmit.  I have always have prompt, caring, 
and knowledgeable responses from Bob and Jay.  Array Solutions is a "first 
class" operation.  No, neither are my brother-in-law!

Mike, W4UM

Wow. 'notorious', 'always'

So, when can I expect my sixpak to become 'notorious'?

That little blue box has been working just fine since March 1999.
