POP......Goes My TS830!!
Well there I was, in my shack, tuning up my TS830 so I could do some operating in PSK on 30M when Pop!!! the rig went dead. Once the initial panic had passed I found that the screw in AC fuse at the back of the rig had blown. This is a 4amp fuse and of course I didn't have any. I replaced it with a 2amp, which will run the rig on receive OK. I am hoping to get some replacement fuses in Maplins on the way home from work tomorrow. Until then its receive only on the data modes here!
