Curt -- I can reflow each pin if I pull up my pants and stop being a whousssssss.
Good implyed question on the drive level. SWR meter says 28w on wspr on 80m, which means two full minutes of hard duty. But I don't know what band it was on when it locks up. I was so freeked about how it could be in drive when there was no TX command from my computer, a disconnected sound card, a reboot, a physical turn off/on, that I didn't notice what the band or pwr level was. I feel silly now not noticing that.
I'll look for any anomolies on the board. The "case" has a lot of air flow, so something could have landed where it wasn't supposed to be.
The lock up is seemingly random, so I can't make it misbehave on command (yet). If it keeps up, I'm sure that even I will figure out the pattern. hahah. This is the third time so far.
If i decide to replace it, I assume the required relay is the axicom V23105A5403A201 discused (endlessly) in previous threads?
Given that I may need only one, there must be some uBITX builder who got 5 or 10 and would send me 1 or 2 (pleaseeeee..)?
