Re: RS-13 Switched on ??



As I recall, some rummors were going around that the mode changes on RS-12
were due to interference generated by the 2m transmitter.  Perhaps after
testing the different mode configurations they decided to sideline RS-12 and
bring up RS-13.  Now if we could only get RS-10/11 back.
