A friend of mine just bought a recent model FT-990. He had been told that it
had excellent QSK. After a few days of operation he has noticed the following:

1. When in qsk mode, the characters are clipped and obviously shorter than
when in semi bk-in mode.

2. On some bands, especially 80 meters, when using qsk, he can hear a short
   blip or dit when letting up on the key. It's almost like an echo. No,
it's      not band conditons. 


Could someone out there confirm this on their FT-990? 

What is the latest E-prom version available?
