<-- Hi Steve;  I just built two new systems last week using the ACID ISO 
that was current last week!  I do have another project on the 
back-burner... my own repeater site where nodes 2182 and 2424 are 
running.  Node 2182 is running half duplex into an RC-210 repeater 
controller, which seems to be very volatile!  The controller arbitrarily 
locks up, unlinks ports, resets the clock, and so on!

The two things that I really like about the controller are:

1.  The ability to send out the ident without enabling the PL, so folks 
with a ctcss enabled receiver don't hear it!

2.  The ability to turn off the PL before the carrier drops, again, 
folks with a ctcss enabled receiver do not hear a squelch crash - it's a 
seamless transition.

I believe the feature described in #1 has been added a little while ago. 
  I am not sure about #2 - can the timing between the PL drop and 
carrier drop be varied to ensure that there is a nice seamless 
transition? - I recall trying this out some time ago but, as I recall, 
the timing could not be changed and we still heard a squelch crash.
