- Feb 2, 2010I'm not sure how exactly. It's not in a case. I am guessing that maybe
12V went into the antenna input. This was before installing any PA/F
module and I had the antenna connector jumpered to bypass that module.
One day it just stopped receiving anything but a strong local AM station
in the center and 2 other places on the waterfall. Q2 failed closed
(stuck in transmit).
Lesson: put your RXTX in a case of any kind after confirming that it
works. Even a plastic tupperware container and don't let any metal
brush by it.
