Re: No Help



George,

 If I had the info, I'd help you on email and telephone till your problem
was fixed. Might you might be asking much? The modern rigs are very complex,
and often require one to purchase a service manual, IF one is available.
This isn't the low complexity rig like an Ameco TX-62, or even a 70's
vintage Yaesu. I work in the field of medical electronics, and I don't think
I have YET seen the level of complexity one finds in the modern (>1980's)
satellite radios. Of course, the satellite designers on the list likely will
have :-).  Given the cost of equipment to really work with the modern
radios, the cost to obtain technical documentation, and the time needed to
learn each radio, I don't think it is unreasonable that one to decide to
just think of the radio as a system component, send the radio for service
and work on all of the other bits you need for satellite operation.

But, I don't get on the satellites much, so what do I know?
