OK Problem 1 solved. I got the beacon to work thank you a response on this forum. Bear with me, I have never used this radio on CW. I have listened on two other radios I own in CW mode. I can hear the radio keying up, its transmitting, but there is nothing but "dead air" There is no tone to be heard on the receiving end. The radio is set to CW and all the CW defaults are in place. On the other end, it just sounds like I am keying and unkeying the microphone. No tone is being injected. What am I missing???
