Hi All,

Grandkids + 1000MP + Alone + Broke!

Somehow one of the little darlings managed to twist knobs
and push buttons on the rig and I can't get it back to

I have done the Power-on Setting restarts but that doesn't
seem to do the job.

Here is the problem.....

Everything seems OK but the main RX. Main RX will work FB
in 6.0K and 2.4K positions but when you go to the 500 width
it sounds like you have just kicked in a very, very narrow
xtal filter or audio filter. Lots of ringing and so 
narrow that you have a very hard time getting a sig tuned 
to hear it.

I have the extra 250 kz filter in the 8.2 MHz side and have
turned it on and off with no change.

Does anyone have any ideas? (It took me 15 min to find the
squelch control all the way up!)

2nd RX works just fine.
