Had to put the project down and walk away from it for a couple days as to reduce my risk of my girlfriend thinking I was getting geeky being up at all hours of the night in front of a computer with a radio attached to it!!

\n

\nIf I concede, I'll be looking to see if Gary P. or Doug might be interested in making the necessary hardware mods to a couple system fronts I have to support the PA901s with hamflash!!
