Back on the air

The new tuner has arrived its a MFJ 949 E- although rather touchy , (it needs better knobs) its performing ok and shows no sign of getting warm, let alone burning out, keep an ear out for me on psk, its always nice to have a qso, conditions seem rather dead today, with hardly anyone heard on 20m , lets hope things pick up a bit

LDG Electronics YT-!00 Failure

My turner started smoking badly today its over a year old, no no chance of a free repair then, im off air until I can get a tuner replacement ,after it cooled down and stopped smoking I found it still works.. it will need a repair , but now Im down to 30w on psk as per the manual, hopefully I wont do any more damage ,Sent it off for repair 11 June, The repair shop say,its beyond economical repair , bought a new tuner today  16th June, it will be here tomorrow.
Turns out the tuner I bought wont run without power, so, ordered a different one, it should arrive today 18th June.
