soon as poss.
Recently I have also had the oscillator re-set (EX2099 software) so
the displayed freq matches the actual freq. I use Spectrum
Laboratory software and since resetting the osc it is clear that, at
frequencies between 50 and 70 MHz, I can now measure video carriers
to accuracies of greater than 1 Hz. Hence the need to leave the PCR
swithced on all the time to avoid drift.
The PCR1000 software is adjustable so you can reset to zero in the
event of any drift however.
Thanks for the help!

this can be one solution.......have you see our PCR1000 CPB project ?
Look at WoodBoxRadio site: http://www.cqdx.it/woodbox/wbr-home.html

This sounds like a simple enough thing to do, but it isn't if you
have to turn the PC off every night like I do so the noise of the PC
fans don't keep the missus awake!! Once the PC is off the receiver
becomes inactive, even though the little green light remains on.
I DX video carriers on band 1 and need to leave the PCR1000 switched
on permanently in order to maintain receiver stability (i.e.
cancelling out the warmup drift which lasts for hours). Is there
any modification which can be done to achieve this?
