Hi Iban well my knowledge of the older generation is not much use to you
:-)) still I always think any response will bring more comments "out of the
woodwork" even if only to correct the false impressions. The suggestion of
of a faulty chip on that remote digit sounds like a worthwhile way to go.
Good Luck with it these are useful units if a bit big by modern standards.
