Re: ax25 transmitting but output is incorrect apparently so no connection

BTW as I always I appreciate the info available...sometimes it is just out of my league...

As far as APRS, thanks, I search on aprs.fi and it says doesn't exist in database.  I still can't see that particular one on aprs.fi...I guess you can't just go to the website and type in a callsign like for everyone else.  So I will have to take your word on that...and that narrows down the trouble a bit.

Left connector from DRAWS to FT-857D

On FT-857D there is a menu entry to monitor 'ALC' when transmitting data...mine  shows right at the correct point (according to description in manual), and power output is what is expected.  So something is getting modulated.
