Are there any other Yaesu service centers or authorized repair
facilities aside from the one in California? Specifically looking for
east coast. My FT-1000D crapped out the same day my 87A arrived :(

Subject: Using an IC706 with CT
Message-ID: <199611011434.IAA25602 at zoom.bga.com>
CT-User seems to be down so I am asking this here.
I would like to try and hook up my Icom IC706 to use it with CT. Has anyone
else done this? i.e. What rig would you select in CT configuration? Is there
any special setup in the IC706 initialization procedures that needs to be done?
I am running CT9.27.
Please reply direct. Thanks.

The FCC has said for some time now that you may start using a new call as
soon as you know what it is. You don't need the paper in hand.
Both your old call and your new call will appear in the FCC database for an
indeterminate period. Eventually, I guess, they purge the old call, but I'm
not sure how long that takes.
Mike is right:
"...you can use them as soon as they hit the FCC's FTP site or they
tell it to you over the phone. You used to have to wait for the
license to show up in the mail, but they changed that..."
Diito for what Ray says:
"Part 97 was changed a while back to the effect that a callsign was
effective when "granted" (which is when it comes out of the computer). So
if you see it in an official FCC generated data base go ahead and use it
Meanwhile, Gate 2 remains in temporary limbo.

Subject: RCV Only Antenna/Radio Question?
Message-ID: <327A156E.5148 at akorn.net>
Using beverages, within 100-200' of the transmitting antennas, is there
any concern when using the "Receive Only" position of the radio in a
Multi Transmitter setup?
The situation is where two stations are sharing the same beverages for
receive, one operating 160M and the other 80M, and transmitting at
different intervals. Using Yaesu 1000MP and a 990.
Appreciate any advice in this area. Thanks and good contesting.
