      Thanks Ed K0KC for looking at my signal,
      I appreciate ur time and energy!

      NY --> OH, 40m, around 2100z
      Ed's signal to me was strong, prop good.

      Summary: for the list, (other suggestions?)
      took power out down to middle of the
      ZERO marker on the output dial, and volume mixer
      down to 6%, clock from -0.3 to 0.1, and still
      no decodes even though signal strength seemed
      good. Screen shot from Ed looks just like
      a normal mid-strength JT9 signal.
      The tune button on the main screen still shows
      'Ticks' which are mentioned in the setup
      instructions, but no remedy is mentioned.

      Ur Ideas, pse?

      tnx es 73 de Bill K WB2SXY
