Today I connected the TS-2000 to the Radio Boss from Green Heron. I struggled with the 13 pins connector on the back side of the TS-2000. Receive audio was no problem, transmit audio was. At the end I found out that the audio only goes through the radio if you put pin 9 of the 13 pins connector to ground (TX). My mistake was that I Tx-ed with the foot switch connected to the front connector of the radio. I thought transmit is transmit but that’s not the case….
Now I can use WSPR to study propagation on HF and 6 meter.

I bought a small Prosistel PST 51. It had a potentiometer problem, so I replaced it. After that I connected it to a Green Heron rotator control box. It took me quit a time to align the rotor to the box, but at the end I succeeded. I have given the rotor a new color and it is now ready to go in a tower soon.

I had a broken KR 600 on the shelf and I repaired it today.
The motor axis was turning but the gear was not turning.
I opened the motor and found that the Hexagon socket screw was become loose.

Today I recieved the new HP color laser printer and installed it. It went smoothly and felt immediately better as the old Epson witch is in the trash can now.
