KA5IPF Thank you for your input. I have checked that out and it seems that the Service Manual for the TM-241 may also apply to the TM-441 & TM541. 73 Norman.

I find it curious that the display and the band went dead. the display is pretty far removed from the band circuity. Is the display still out? Is it only black on 30M?Huh Do you hear anything on 30?
I don't know anything about your rig either, but some things are almost "givens" in the design and failure modes HF radios.

Has an operating site been selected yet?  The island loos to be extremely mountainous.  I hope a good site can be selected for good HF take-off.

It looks like the license permits only two stations.  So I believe four operators and two stations are all we're going to see.

hi All

Let me explain  the situation on the island. There is no possible to select any place.. I have to go to the spot which is already set by National Park.  there is no negotiations. South-west part of the island.

Thank you to W9GB for the help in locating cable material.  I went with the McMaster Carr product (9204K19).

As a public service announcement, though, please take notice that I was contacted by someone posing as Robert Collins (W6TNI) who said he had one.  Of course the payment was supposed to go to Maryjo Mellor.  Total scam.  When I pressed him/her for a picture of the jumper, they sent a picture of a harness section out of an automobile. 

Thanks again and 73 to all.

I can tell you how much money I lost to Guyana, Suriname, and Peru Cheesy

At this rate it's cheaper and safer for me to start paying for LoTW confirmations Cheesy

I have a few MFJ products. A MFJ-616 speech enhancer, and a MFJ-434 auto tuner. Both work flawlessly, and the construction and materials are high quality.  I don't regret purchasing either unit.

I've seen other MFJ products that I would not own--including some of the manual tuners.  I almost suspect some of the equipment is being manufactured offshore?

It may all be a moot point if they are just surviving day to day.  You can win a court case, but if there are no assets or cash you will be back where you started.  At this point if a refund is not coming, it might be best to hope they can right the ship and eventually catch up and honor their subscription commitments.

But, the continued silence and lack of communications isn't doing much to inspire confidence in their business ethics.

Sent and returned via registered mail. With return receipt and delivery tracking on my end, which never went through after the QSL request left Tampa. Also sent a Suriname stamp on the return envelope, which I have never done before or since.

Prolly expensive on his end to send via registered mail. Had I known, I would have included more greens than I did.

The Suriname postal service must be incredibly thief-infested.

The lastest RS commercial is using Weird Al!  It just becomes more and more bizarre!  One of the holiday gimmicks is bringing in a few high tech toys to draw in the crowds. I remember when their stores were full of cheap walkie talkies, remote control gizmos, etc. for the Christmas season. I hope they can hang in there, but it is hard to compete with Amazon and other internet sales venues.

Can someone enlighten me (no pun intended) as to whether these things actually do anything useful. My way of thinking is that they belong in the same category as snake oil, antenna lacquer or coax polish, but I'm open to answers.


They can provide transverse mode protection; limiting the voltage across the transmission line. But, when dealing with a lightning discharge I'd personally want a darn good common point ground system in place to drain energy to earth before the cables enter my shack!

One problem with gas arrestors is when the SWR rises due to higher impedance antenna loads... in some instances a high SWR can cause those devices to "fire," which in turn can cause serious damage to a power amplifier.  Once the arrestor fires, the amp is running into a dead short. Good bye to the bandswitch, etc.
