Last couple weeks I have a had a problem with my 897D doing double SSB on RX and TX. Last night I was looking around for a firmware update for the 897D to see if that might fix my problem as I have tried other things like full CPU reset on the rig etc.
Well I found the page below in my travels and it had reference to relay cleaning by hold down the UP and DWN keys and powering the rig ON will start the cleaning of the relays and display CLEANING RELAYS on the screen. The great news is that this little unknown trick to me has fixed my double SSB problem
Today I setup Prey 0.5.3 on my netbook running Debian testing.
# apt-get install prey
Here is what I modified in my ‘/etc/prey/config‘
# autoconnect feature, disabled by default until we are 200% sure it
# works flawlessly in all platforms. feel free to try it out though.
# you can get both of these from Prey's web service
# if you're having trouble getting requests across your firewall or proxy,
# you can try adding '-0' to make curl perform HTTP 1.0 requests
# this option prepends a random number as a subdomain to the check URL on http mode
# makes it harder for other programs to block Prey so its a good idea to be on
Also I added to my root crontab for updates
# crontab -e
