    And here I thought it was because of the FT-101 with the Dosy meter.

    Why do you drink beer when you have such a cherry setup? that's like having a hot wife then watching a stupid football game with your buds when you could be doing, well you know?

    No problem there. You could not give me the thing. As for that 2% thing, you can bust me on that bet.

    Let them try that test on ex smokers.

    Thirsty,
    Easy to fix! Don't let'em bum cigarettes and make'em bring their own beer.

    Nice set up, Hard to beat those old Fox Tango's for audio.

    Nicotine does leave a residue on electronic boards and basically whatever it touches. If the electronics is exposed to the cigarette smoke in confined space with poor ventilation it is just a matter of time before a failure happens.

    I get many vintage pieces across the bench here to get repaired, restored and some come in looking dull brown. Covered in tar and nicotine residue. Not a pretty sight.

    I am not downing smokers as I am one myself. I smoke outside the shack, outside the house and outside the vehicle.

    Just look at all the yellow stained RCI-2950's button pads out there, LOL.

    Not to mention all the other greasy chicken fingered, dusty, grimey, cat and dog hair coated boards.

    Some people have no cooth.

    Heroin is old school, now you need to use crack and meth. You have to change with the times.
    The only thing I see wrong there is the Dosy wattmeter.

    Oh is that what he means? I dont think so either in this case. There is a ceiling fan in the garage running all the time and there is a big open space here. Cigarettes may harm electronics if a smoker is in a closed non ventilated room and being chain smoked directly on but that is not the case here.
    As a side note I only smoke when I drink beer, the days I work etc, I dont smoke at all.

    That what I thought KW4HKY was alluding too. Since I purchased the rig already modified I did not "ruin". And I also mostly talk on SSB and the rig hardly gets warm.
