Could only join for a few hours the CQWWRTTY last weekend
DX was possible
strong XE2CQ 40m (heard only could not copy me or other EU callers )
VK3JA 40m several JA at 21 MHz
A very strange issue with the K3 in RTTY at 15m
the tx switched out / on in a slow sequence after some cq calling
a relay starts to click in a slow 1-2 second sequence and the RF does interrupt to complete zero.
The TX led is on as normal. And first off/on off/on and then stays at zero out.
No error message. no RFI effect observed .
This is only in RTTY and only 21MHz
It happend before only RTTY at 15m
It is not that the CAT RTS drops i monitored that then the TX would go off as well.
it is an internal K3 issue since a relay click is heard at the moment the TX output is gone.
strange things happen sometimes
Finally i tried to make a video clip of this strange behavior
This was happening all the time after a few cq's or when i tried to respond to a caller.
But once the recording was running you can guess .. it did not appear.
