Well I have posted on here several times about issues in my old Drake TR7 and have gotten great response. So I am asking yet again. I believe that I need to set up a station ground. I have been getting consistent reports of a "motor boat type sound" and or reports of "FMing" on my signal. I have some issues in the Drake that need to be addressed by a specialist, I am in contact with wb4hfn about giving it a "full spa vacation."
I have been honored to have the opportunity to buy a friends' fathers' Kenwood TS940SAT. It is pristine! Unfortunately Toms' father and mother both became silent keys in Dec and then Jan. I had hoped that things would improve with the newer radio however it hasn't. So any input and or helpful suggestions would be very appreciated. I really want Tom to hear a strong signal when we chat. He could not keep the radio as he is blind and it has too many buttons and knobs. It took us about 4 months for him to learn the FT 897 he has. It makes me a little sad and kinda proud that he gave me first shot at it. I want him to know when he hears the Kenwood that can he not only have a good memory but know that it went to a good home. He really emphasized to me that he wanted it to be used.
