I wonder if anyone has come across this issue when using the Kenwood TS2000
on 6m FT8 or VHF meteor scatter.

I recently purchased a used Kenwood TS2000, made in January 2012.  I am
looking at getting it on FT8 and other digital modes, but have found a few
old postings on the internet stating that when using the ACC2 jack for
audio in on the digital modes, it takes 3 to 4 seconds to reach full power
on transmit.  I have had a TS2000 in the past and used it with a Signalink
USB interface and can't remember if this was a problem with it or not.

Is that a common problem for all TS2000s?  Did they fix it at some point
and does anyone know the serial number range or firmware version where this
issue was fixed?
