Thank you Garmin tech support

As I mentioned before, the heart rate stopped working on my Forerunner 301. This morning, my replacement strap arrived, as promised by tech support. I just tried it, and it works fine. Result! Of course, it would have been better if it hadn't taken a month to get the replacement, but you can't have everything.
Now I have a broken transmitter I can cut open to see what's inside. Stay tuned...
