We spoke when you were on Holy Island :mrgreen: Was working ok I think.

There are changes, mostly firmware, features added or deleted, and board has some alterations including resistor.

Should be in stores now, but not many so far. I can't find one nowhere at all online.

Hope your well?

Hi Dave,

When you test it, can you try some cw please?

I understand that the previous versions had some issues with the keying?

Thanks,


Ken

If most of the fixxes are in firmware then i am wondering when a new firmware would arive to fix the old clunker piece of underdeveloped ,overpriced crap which i bought just recently at a premium price and is full of firmware faults...

Or does president actually believes i keep buying their pre-production prototype crap until they get it right sometime?

To put things in perspective, i just recently bought a chinese 20 euro piece of electronic garbage ( a fridge magnet with camera) , but it has a usb socket and within 10 minutes after purchase i found a new firmware for it and after installing it worked fine, just like the 19k2 modem which i upgraded through firmware to 33k6, that was in 1995....
