Feb 23rd WA8VSJ suggested I check the key socket and investigate the internal keyer. I have not gotten inside the case yet - limited time.
I did go to the menu. The CW KEYER was turned to "OFF". I switched it to "Mode A"; still continued RF output. I switched it to "Mode B", still continued RF output. Same results with the key plug inserted or removed. I returned the switch to "OFF".
Using the menu I switched the TRANSMITTER from "ON" to 'OFF'. The RF output continued!! I returned the switch to "ON".
Using the menu I switched the KEYING LOOP from "OFF" to "ON". The transmitting stopped and the receiver was working as normal. Put the key plug in; keying had no effect.
Hopefully I'll have time this weekend to get the case off.
Thanks & 73
