PTT does not release power

On several occasions today, the output power would not release with PTT released. I tried restarting SSDR V1.2 still the same. Shutdown the radio and disconnected the 13.8 volts. Restarted the radio with the OK button depressed, still the same results. I had to shutdown the radio to release the PA. Not good for remote operation.

I have had this too. Traced it to RF feedback.....rf was getting into everything. Try it with one watt out, if it goes away, it's rf feedback.

Fixed it by making a better ground and putting rf cores on all cables attached to my F6.7K.
