Reboots of the FT-857 radio / 2017-07-03

2017-07-03 Reboots of the FT-857 radio2 weeks ago
The last week I had a problem with the FT-857 radio rebooting when I started transmitting in digital radio modes (PSK31 or JT65). The reboot showed as the radio giving the standard beep and the display and backlight switching off and on. Searching for clues suggested that some form of radio frequency interference would probably be the source.

So I wondered what I changed recently around the radio and remembered I changed something in the power distribution to have connectors available for powering my SARK100 antenna analyzer with a 12 volt battery.

Reseating all those power connectors and fixing some wires seems to have stopped the problem.
