So this started out pretty normal then turned bizarre when I moved from 20 to 40. No one could copy me on 40. It was obvious they were hearing me but couldn't print. Brought up RBN and they weren't seeing me either. Long story short -- something unknown caused my TS-2000 to revert all its menu settings to the defaults. For whatever reason, I had to set this radio to Inverse polarity to make it work with MMTTY. The reset flipped it back to Normal. I spent close to an hour going over and over software settings, updating software, rebooting, and so forth before stumbling on the solution. Big thanks to Ray ND8L for letting me know that the polarity was my problem and offering some troubleshooting tips. Quit early because I was already so far behind and it was difficult to copy anything through the static crashes on 80. 73 -- Ray WQ5L
