Think about this. If you conceal the rigs identity, how do readers know
which rigs to avoid. By concealing you are endorsing the faulty rigs.

I purposefully avoided naming the radios that I noticed had the clicks.  
I think people should discuss that off line.  I can only say I agree 
with your comments, Jim.  This problem was mentioned again by Rob 
Sherwood in a recent webinar, and it clearly needs attention by the 
manufacturers.  I also noticed extreme clicks years ago with early Flex 
models, but they quickly cleared that up.  Even setting the default to 
6ms or more by the manufacturers would be a big help, since it seems 
most people don't change that setting.   Hot switching with older amps 
with slow relays can be a major click problem, too.  Jim
