Greg, did you get my email?  If not check your spam folder.  G-mail is notorious for sending emails to the spam folders.  I’ve had numirous times when people didin’t get the email until they checked the G-mail spam folder.  This is why I don’t use G-mail.

BTW do I know you? I ask that because I wonder where you get your information from about me being an idiot and whether I need to avoid you because you appear to have some form of mental issue that makes you downright rude for no good reason.
 
Sorry James, but do we really have to put up with this kind of abuse?

I'm no pro but did you activate all options in the menus first? That would be the first place I looked. If so, something could have came loose during the reassembly.

Hi All,

I have a K3s that I have fitted a 1ppm TCXO and the ext. reference board and all worked well after this minor surgery.

I have now fitted the 144XV and the K144XV REFLOCK PCB ASSY.
 

The problem I now have is I don't have receive on any Band or any Mode, or any Antenna, just the audio noise from the audio amp.
 
My question is:-
Should there be only one TMP cable from the transverter to the Ksync, should there also be one from the
Ksync to the Xref Board?
 
Can anyone provide any help please?

Re: K4 and Reliability on previous products?

John Canfield <bucket@...>
 

I assembled my K3S, the instructions were excellent and I thought the build quality of the boards was excellent. I've had exactly one failure - the clamping zener diode across the power input shorted and tripped the fuse (I think it's automatically resettable but I forgot). Support told me power supply spikes can cause this failure (I think it was a 15V zener?) but fortunately when I bought the K3S I also bought the Powerwerx power supply from them so they covered the repair under warranty and sent me a new power supply.
