Honestly, Don, I never got around to fixing that.  I've been using the 
plate switch on the front of the Viking II.

The PLAN was, to toggle the PTT line from a computer, that was operated 
remotely via the internet.

It worked for a while but as I stated, the resulting back emf spark 
across the contacts ate 'em up pretty quick.  In a matter of a few days, 
as I recall.

That might be something to work on again, today.  I was looking for a 
small'ish project to get into before I attend a social function this 
afternoon at 3pm.
