I had an "expert" around today,in setting up the flex to run with other software such as wsjt and fldifi and after 4 hours, he walked away threatening to kill my f3k. I could not resist a "I told you so" quirk as he left with 4 beers in his belly to wash away his sorrow. Well, I am still using my trusty ft-897d to do all the digital modes for me. I wonder if he will ever speak to me again, let alone take up my new challange. Bed time calls.
