Got some peripherals to attach to the FLEX 6500 I'm curious I'm not sure about the ground connections on pin 6, 7, and 8. if those pins are tied to the same ground as Pin #5, or if they are floating The peripherals are the Signalink and KamPlus thanks Jim WU5E

    From a DC point of view they appear to be tied together. and you're probably be okay assumed they are. How closely they are tied together from an audio/rf point of view, I can not say. AL, K0VM

    I am using the Navigator and the cable I am using between the Navigator and the Flex 6700 has pins 6,7, and 8 tied together to Audio ground in the Navigator and pin 5 is separate and goes to its own ground pin on the Navigator. Unfortunately I can't tell if they are tied together internally on the Navigator.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
