Nils and the QRP-L Gang,

"low receive signals through the transmitter's "t/r" circuit."

Well, I am one of those owners and I found the same thing. I
decided to use a separate antenna until that one came down in a storm.

THEN I noticed something; when using the tx for a rx antenna source,
the reduction in rx signal strength goes away when the coax connector
in the tx antenna line is slightly unscrewed. Yes, I ran coax to the
tx. I figure somethings getting grounded with the "TR switching"
that shouldn't or vice-versa.

That's all I have so far. Glad You like the rig.
