After a a long layoff, I was back on the air this weekend for the 10m
contewet. The shack configuratioin has changed a slight bit (a new computer
and N1MM instead of WriteLog), but that's it. I have been successfully
using a MicroHam Microkeyer II for some time.

Early in the contest, the radio went deaf, but both a Master and RAM reset
cured that (although I wish it hadn't happened!).

After the contest, I shut everything down. A few hours later, when I turned
the radio back on, it sounded like internal relays were clicking as I
turned the VFO encoders or other knobs. Ratatat-tat -- the sound (for those
old enough to remember) of a baseball card hitting the spokes of your
bicycle wheel. Not the heavy/clunky sound of an amplifier relay.

The radio seemed otherwise okay, although I didn't transmit with it. Resets
did not change  anything.

Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?
