[TenTec] SCOUT: module problem resolved

Not exactly sure which was the cure but the contacts were all cleaned 
thoroughly with super fine steel wool and all joints resoldered. The module 
slides in nicely and locks right in properly. I noticed that the case screws 
also need to be JUST snug and too tight causes a distorted case.

On the 80 and 40m modules I used a file to remove a little of the case spacer 
near the screw hole. This helped to slim down the case to make a noticeable 
difference in how it slides in.

Hope this is of some benefit to others
