Are your sure? Or Possibly it is the other way around? Where the PSK is
what gets shut off?
Reason asking is My 10 meter side has been no problem, even 5 watts, is
enough to activate her. My weak side has been the recv.
But Sunday I put together a 70 cm 9 ele beam and listened and on both
passes not only was it full quieting it was FULL SCALE!!
Then at the 00Z pass this evening I was ready for transmit too.
I listened first and heard nothing, about mid way I started
transmitting, and nothing at 5 watts, 20,, 50 and even 100 not once did
she come awake.
Does this happen?
