I suggested Tim's QSY to 3605 idea to Kenny earlier today.
Will anyone be around about 9 PM tonight onight to test this out? I am
tuned up on 3540 and can instantly QSY to 3605 by switching the tuner in.
If this works, I won't need to change the resonator to give out some phone
Send me an email if you can get on for a couple of minutes to give me a
report around 9 PM.
