First QSO and a question

g0fuw@...
 

Hi Folks
Just to say that I have had my first QSO with my 14MHz BITX - UK to Italy
on 2.5W gave 55 report.
Had some problems with T/R changeover. PA seemed to go into self-oscillation
with a relay in line. Replaced with miniture toggle close to Rx Ant pin and
now seems fine. I think the relay contacts were acting as a capacitor and
feeding some Tx output back to PA input.
Anyone else had this?
Any good ideas to prevent?
73, Steve, G0FUW
