Hello Glen,

Thank you for the information. No it's clear to me, now!
I understand the problem and the fix. I really appreciate the help.
I would be "One sad pup", if my radio lost it's bite! :) :)

May I have your permission to ues this information in a 72 news letter

while in Quebec on how the kite flying antenna goes.
