Re: Deaf DEM 2400-144RX



Hi Kevin:

    I DID check all holes as the instructions said and even had to clean a few
of them but sometimes that is not enough, esecially when the short that
I ran into were as thin as a hair on one of the holes and the short in the
other hole could only be seen with an ohmmeter (no visual indication that I
could see). I think the directions needs to include using an ohmmeter for
the inspection before assembly.

Now it's time for me to put together the DSP-10 kit i recieved yesterday
from TAPR. This is going to be fun. :-)
