    Not really a fly in, more a sort of "Weekday Thing".

    Icom Voltage to Mic problem

    Hi Phil,

    Yes, green led should flash every few seconds. The situation you describe certainly sounds like it is not getting constant power from the intercom.

    Deanland no flexwings, Why?

    Hi Joan, I am very careful to never bite. Sadly he does it because he really is a KN*B. If you have been to Tenerife he has been to Elevenerife.
