Thanks you all
for the responses.
The problem I
was having with the headset is that the speaker would
not mute when the headset was plugged in. This was with
the CONFIG:SPKRS = 2 and CONFIG::SPKRS+PH = YES. When I
changed to CONFIG:SPKRS+PH = NO, then the speaker shuts
off with or without the headset plugged in. In other
words, I had to change to CONFIG::SPKRS+PH = YES in
order to have any speaker output regardless of whether
the headset was plugged in or not.
resolved this issue so that the speaker mutes
automatically when the headset is plugged in, That
answer was in the "Nifty! Mini-Manual" I purchased and
received just yesterday. After setting CONFIG:SPKRS+PH =
NO and having no speaker output without the headset
plugged in, I read further in the paragraph describing
headphone and speaker configuration. There is a
statement in parenthesis there that states "If no audio,
tap  until you see PH.R SW-, the minus setting is
required for the K3s", So, tapping  resolved the
problem. I'm not sure what that actually does, but it
with the knob is not about knob tension. It spins just
fine, maybe even a tad light, but ok. The problem is
with (1) the noise it makes rubbing on dry felt and (2)
the feel is has when rubbing on dry felt. I have been a
ham for 52 years, and this is the worst I have
encountered in those regards. I have never before been
able to "hear" a VFO knob as it turns or "feel" the knob
rubbing on felt spacers. I was just wondering if anyone
else has addressed this issue is some manner. It's not a
showstopper by any means, nor is it overly annoying.
It's just something I believe could be made a lot better
for a rig in this price category.
Thanks for the inputs. I realize that filter choice and
use is most often a personal preference, but it is good
to have the opinions of others along with why they
believe their filter choice works best for them. I am
leaning towards adding the 2.1 KHz and 400 Hz filters,
with the biiger question being a choice between the 2.1
KHz and the 1.8 KHz.
