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.

73,  Hal W1NN
