Having a senior moment here today...............I seem to recall a calibration service in Rockford, IL that did one some years ago, but can't find it at the moment. It I can recover the name. I will post it.

BRIEF OBIT-BOB GROOME

There are very few details at this time. I got word this morning from an old Harris buddy that Bob Groome, formally field service tech at Harris, has passed away. I had heard that he was associated with RF Specialties in recent years, and living in Florida. If I get any updates, I'll post them. Bob ...

Re: GATES AIR FULL DOCUMENTATION LOCATION

I think you got it figured out. Didn't dawn on me that was a possibility.

Then, if you have an account, you might be able to get to that site. I will check with a backup laptop I have that isn't known to their site to see what happens.

Thanks,

SOCIAL DISTANCING

I tried social distancing with my wife but it was a dismal failure. She found an 8 ft. extension for the rolling pin.

Re: Hmm, maybe you were the guys who sent us our parts to Kansas? :D

Well, when I started there, I worked in the Order Entry Dept. We did everything! I took parts orders, helped troubleshoot equipment, edited large orders from the salesmen. Each of us even did a solid week of after hours emergency response to off air stuff. I can recall shipping more than my share of...

In fact, not. bragging - of course - I helped a guy out on a very old AM 500 watt rig getting pars to get him back on the air. I made a comment of my age and the xmt...

Re: ND-25 Problem

Never worked on one myself, but a wild thought comes to mind.....is there a "FAIL SAFE CONNECTION" that mutes the rig when control path is lost"? If that opens, it might mute the RF.

The flashing lights, however could could indicate what Doc mentioned as a place to look.
