    Very essential to know when the rig is in TX for many reasons. Believing you are in RX because you didn t press a button is what it is, belief not fact. A few

      A few weeks ago I came home to find the SR63ng/Mobo/Widget with an overtemp shutdown message displayed and immediately saw the TX LED lit, so there was no guessing what had happened. 

      I fit them on any piece of gear capable of TXing together with a power LED.

      Hi Charles.
       
      There you go. For probably less then a dollar you have a RxTx light. I wanted to see red and green but did not want 2 holes. With the values shown the red LED is brighter which I was looking for. I had a external PA failure. About 80 dollars worth of failure I could have caught with a LED. Controller got RF in to it and stuck in transmit. I did not catch it till to late!

      Oh, nice little mod there Larry.

      Funny you came out with your mod right after I was glancing through an All Electronics catalog and looking over the same kind of LED.

      They have a Red/Green Bi-Color LED (T 1 3/4 5mm) for 50 cents each, catalog#: LED-6.
