Hi Carmen - I enjoyed listening to your FB signal on 7030.7 tonight - Yes I know you were on there a long time and had to QRT, I totally understand... duty calls ;)

Forgive my poor sounding fist but I was eager to make the first contact on the Ten Tec Omni V that I got at NEAR-fest last Saturday. Tried RX briefly when I got it home but too busy to focus on it this week. So tonight I fired it up and found you on lower 40, RX sounds great but wanted to try TX.

The rig doesn't have an internal keyer so I hooked up the W9WBL V2L paddles and tried to use them sideways as a straight key. As if that wasn't bad enough (it's been 30 years since I used a straight key and it shows), the sidetone volume through the earphones was deafening. No idea how to dial it down. Time to RTFM.

Great hearing you.

Andrew NV1B
