I have a Kenwood TS-520.  I bought a CW7 and built it according to the directions and tested it every way I could.

When I connect the kit to the rig, I get a constant tone as if I were holding down a straight key.  Disconnecting the kit breaks the circuit.  I figured that there was something wrong with my construction and called Ramsey, but the tech I talked to couldn't find anything wrong.

I bought another kit and assembled it.  I was careful and tested everything I could.  I finally finished and to my surprise I got the same exact result.

It's possible that I screwed up both kits in exactly the same order.  I don't think that's the problem.  I suspect that there's something about my rig that doesn't like this kit -- does anyone know what I need to do to make this work?

Hi,

The kenwood has grid block circuit so looks like
the ramsey kit could be setup for direct keying.

I could not get to the ramsey site at this time,
so check the manual to see if you can change to
grid block.

Otherwise, I think you built the kit properly.
