    Hi guys ole 577 here..been a while.
    Anyhow I have a brand new TS 500V with non red dot shibas here.
    Really nice amp,i did the conversion following the CBT instructions to a Tee and the amp will not key from radio RF.If I short the emitter of the keying tranny to ground the relay keys and amp works perfect.
    Did anybody ever run into this problem,Im hoping its just a glitch in the directions(missing step ect..) and not a blown trace on the bottom of the board or bad component somewhere?
    any help sure would be greatly appreciated.
