1. Try and do anything (like clear the RIT) while TXing on CW. 
2. Watch a computer program that likes to poll the radio all of the time 
error out when it doesn't get a response from the radio because you are 

Another problem I have had:  The radio will all of sudden QSY in to 
never-never land.  I assume it got zapped by RF and the microprocessor 
freaked.  The display will say some weird non-HF frequency.  Only way to 
clear it is by turning the radio off and on again.  Do this a few times 
in a contest and your patience for the radio grows thin... Even if the RX 
is superior.

I also have a problem with drive power.  Mine will put out about 95w on 
most bands.  I don't see an easy way to increase this power.  At 95w, my 
pair of 3-500Z's get to about 1KW.  At 125W they will go to 1500W.
