last night I replaced the TUF-1 mixer in my K2 with a new one I'd ordered from Elecraft. I think I heat-damaged the TUF-1, and they sent a TOP-1. They're the same as far as Elecraft is concerned. It was hard to get the old one out, and I'd been putting it off for a while. The bands sounded much quieter; that was last night, and it's true tonight, too. I'm not certain but I think it's an improvement. I called CQ HFPAC on 3741.50 and heard Orrin WN1Z on 3740.50, and he was quickly answered by Bill K6ACJ. We had a round-table, but Orrin was weak or faded out for most of it, except the beginning and the end, where he was 559. Bill was 599, S9+40 the whole time. Definitely easier sounding on 80m tonight. I got a 559 from Bill, 30W to the loop.
