Hi John,

You may want to give Autek a call as the problem that Joe N2CX mentioned was
a factory problem of one of the switchs hitting a metal piece when the case
was sandwiched on. The factory had a fix for it - so a call might not hurt.

Good luck let us know what you hear since I also have the Autek RF-1

PS: (This is a PS: before a PS is needed) - Does anyone know how accurate
the inductance readings are on the RF-1. I was into winding toroids the
other day for some new band modules for my Wilderness Sierra and I noticed I
kept measuring a little high across the board for all toroids - and that is
after subtracting the "shorted" inductances measurement out and also it was
measured at the freq the toroid would be used at. For the life of me I just
can't understand those Autek instructions - need one of those Yellow Books -
Reading Inductance on Toroids Using an Autek RF-1 For Dummies" :^)
