Morse code practice is going slow

Well my intention started out great, though having a family of 5, where the youngest is little over a year, does not permit many time slots to practise.

Family first though then code practise.

Still trying to get loans for the new qth/house

We are still in the process of gettlng the loans into place.

TS-120S has been fixed (I hope)

After adding SB mods to it, it has become little better though still not usefull.

Then today I removed the top cover, loosened the screws holding the RF unit and the relay above it, then tightned them all again.

Next was alittle wiggling of all connectors in the ares of the relay board.

Now it seems to work without any problems in all bands and all modes (that it can)

Thanks to Eric, KM4ZL from the kenwoodts120_130 group at yahoo

In heinseit the RF unit board's screws was a tad bit loos. I exercised the band selecter when i was at it.
