Hi have been following the interesting things here on the MP. I 
purchased one at Dayton and it seems to be acting fine so far. Serial 
#5N05????. Tried to use it with my KAM+ this weekend for the RTTY 
contest and couldn't make a single contact. I listened to the monitor 
and only got a single tone. I is wired according to the specs as AFSK 
to the Packet port. It hears just fine. What am I doing wrong???

Whether I push the PKT or RTTY button I get only a single tone. I 
limited the power output via the menu and tried adjusting the ALC 
according to the manual. Could not get the ALC to register anything 
until I applied a little power. Then the ALC jumped to the MAX ALC and 
pinned there.

I enjoy the occasional RTTY and such contact and had fun when I used the 
FT-890AT. Still got the 890 but am getting ready to go mobile with it. 
Sure don't want to drag it in and out of the shack everytime I want to 
go digital. HELP!!!
