[TenTec] Scout module questions

Wed, 11 Sep 2002 15:13:16 EDT

I recently purchased a Scout and am pleased with operations but had some 
questions regarding the modules:

(1) Some module cases seem to be a bit more snug at sliding into the slot. In 
particular these are my 80m and 40m modules. Is this standard or do I need to 
lightly sand some of the case down?

(2) The 10m module seems to not dock properly when inserted all the way 
(reads 142) but appears to function when inserted about 1/16inch from full 
docking. Is there an adjustment? (contacts were all cleaned)

(3) Changing modules I turn the rig off first, but wanted to check and see if 
this is necessary/recommended practice.

I am very impressed with this unit--nice marriage of form and function. I can 
see why there are a lot of Scout fans
