After warmup I can hear an increasingly annoying tone not related to 
the CW sidetone freq when using my FT1000MP in cw mode with the EDSP 
off.  My setup is 500HZ filter att 8.215 and 250Hz at 455kHz.  The 
warbling tone is just above the noise floor but I can hear it even in 
the presence of strong signals.  It is easily noticeable with the 
antenna disconnected.  It may move out of the audio passband only to 
return later.  I only gradually became aware of it.  It is storng 
enough to interfere with weak cw signals.  I am curious as to whether 
I have drawn an unlucky set or if this is present in other FT1000Mps. 
 I woudl appreciate hearing from any of you with information.

Subject: Cisco Systems to buy TGV
Message-ID: <199601270417.UAA16697 at mailx.best.com>

I saw this in the San Jose Mercury News yesterday.

Cisco Systems Inc. in San Jose has agreed to acquire TGV Software Inc. of 
Santa Cruz in a stock swap valued at $115 million.  The acquisition extends 
Cisco's software product line to include network applications and services 
that are used to build corporate networks.  The transaction is expected to 
be completed by April.

That explains why my TGV shares went from 9 to 15 in the past 2 days :-)  

Unfortunately, I originally bought the shares at 21 in April.  :-(
