Re: Re: [OT] ft-736 keyer question



Hi,

To make my staight key work correctly, i open the "vox" switch,it then by
adjusting a litle bit the "delay", i make it work perfectly.
I think this was not necessary when i got the radio, but something
appened...
Of course, i use a stereo jack to connect the key.

73!
