I thought I was having a good weekend - loads of uniques on 40m CW
About 17:00z the lights in the house went very bright and then dimmed - power surge?
Result Ft-100 will not turn on - Ft-817 lost all memories.
Sorry forgot to mention Doublet took off in high winds yesterday - feeder still there.
FT-100 appears dead.
Good news :-
Ft-817 recovered and I’ve managed to reload all settings using FT-817 Commander (thanks Simon HB9DRV)
Kenwood TS-530sp (which I have been using solely for 40m CW ) never flinched and is working perfectly. Aren’t valves great ?
So 5Mhz from now on will be QRP from FT-817.
