[TenTec] Scout module questions re power and module change

Well, there is a powered oscillator inside the module, I ALWAYS turn off
power even to low power stages to not hot switch an edge card connector.
Maybe nothing bad happens in 100 tries, but there is always a chance!
(Like a module that sat unused for months and plugging in hot, causes a
current surge to the bypass cap. Those edge card fingers are only good for
so many arcs).
But, I am from the warm active device set, when hot switching often had
sparktacular and disastrous results!
