I bought a Mark V on 12/23/04...I brought it home and first thing I did was 
transmit on cw with it and tuned across the signal with my 940...I didn't 
hear any clicks, so haven't done anything more with the click issue...I have 
made probably 800 or so cw contacts with the Mark V and no complaints 
yet...I'm about four miles NE of K3WW's station, and during ARRL CW I found 
myself at numerous times making contacts just underneath his run freq, and 
so far haven't gotten any negative comments from him.  Serial # is 
4i640003...make sure you keep us posted on what you find out.
