Yea, they moved service...  to a new building....  i am waiting till august as well to send in my PA.

I have two new PAs sets (Rio Grande and UP) arriving today from Nick Smith...  so will test them too...  so far only intermittant issue found (one time) on the Santa Fe lead A unit.  Tested same engine again thismorning and it worked fine.  Programmed a new number and it held it for several power cycles....  will test more today...

Bad news Bob. Talking to our colleagues in the club.  After 4 weeks of working they are now forgetting their set id's.  I would plan on marching them all back.

The UP did have the issue with just the Lead A unit.  Trailing A unit had kept number.

Just tested the new RIO GRANDE (looks great) and it is perfect.  So had issue on 2 of the 6 new PA sets.  I will keep testing them, see if they go bad.  

I tested Dr ZW Jon Z's suggestion and shut down aux5.  But it didnt help...

 

Sorry it didn't, was worth a try.  There is less "activity" in the software  in the loco when shutdown, so I was hoping it wold help.   Appreciate the update on the testing of the idea.
