Hello Gord,

        Yes indeed, there was a EPROM update for the early Kenwood
TS-950SXD radios.  I don't know the serial number cut off, but you
can determine if you need the update simply by going to SSB and
running CT simultaneously.  The problem radios would introduce a
repetitive "thumping" sound in the transmitted audio.  You could
even hear it in the monitor position with headphones.  I believe
there was a microprocessor timing issue that was resolved with the
updated firmware.  K1EA and Kenwood quickly determined the problem
and Kenwood furnished the fix.
