Following up on the 9612 and IC 910 problems: The diagnosis is the IC 
910 had a problem, possibly caused by lightening, which damaged the FET 
that provides PTT ground from the KPC 9612.  I've sent the KPC to 
Kantronics and the IC 910 to ICOM for repair.  The 9612 Plus is a 
current product and Kantronics will repair them. ICOM service centers 
still repair the IC 910 but the person at the Washington center 
indicated they may not for much longer.  This is too bad because in my 
view the 910 is still a great satellite rig.
