I’m afraid that I have been spending way too much time and effort trying to come up with the “optimal” setup for my desk/shack. Not only have I rearranged things many, many times. But every time I switch things around… I have to update my QRZ page with the new details because I don’t want it to be out of date. I finally gave up on that a couple of days ago and decided to remove all the details about my setup. Instead I will just have a picture. That will be way easier to keep up to date.
Still waiting to get my Yaesu FTM-100DR back from the Yaesu repair shop. I am very curious to see if they will even acknowledge that it has a problem. Honestly, when it comes back I’m not even sure that I will use it. It really boils down to whether or not I decide to go back to running WiRES-X. I do know that I really like not having a laptop on the desk. And since the only reason for the laptop is to run WiRES-X… it makes the idea of using a hotspot instead very attractive.
Below, you can hear the recording of the problem that caused me to send my radio to Yaesu for repair. It happens when receiving data via WiRES-X. And it happens even with the volume all the way down.
