Operating today for several hours with nothing wrong.  At some point, I completely lost all transmit audio.  I've double checked all the settings, and nothing changed or is set wrong.  I've tried several mics on different mic inputs (MIC and BALANCED) with the same result.  Tried adjusting mic modulation, but get the same thing.  TX is selected on slice A.  AM and FM send a carrier, but no audio.  USB and LSB send no audio.  Different DAX settings change nothing.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, guys, for all the suggestions.  It turned out to be (yet another) operator-caused problem.  I cleaned up my shack wiring yesterday.  The balanced audio input jack was not plugged fully into the socket, by only about .5 mm or less.  That, obviously, shorted something out (even though balanced audio input was not selected).  When pushed in that tiny little bit, everything worked again.

Now, back to restoring the profile, memories, etc. (what a PITA).

I have an unrelated question.  When I create panadapters on SSDR, I cannot destroy them from SSDR.  I can only destroy them by going to the radio front panel, then going back to SSDR.  I'm missing something, but I can't figure out what.

Thanks, again, for all the help.  It's really appreciated.
