      I think this is two different issues. Jerry is talking about the 3 KHz
      radio mode, which uses a soundcard to decode the audio from the receiver.

      Bill is running into a different thing, I believe. Bill, if you use the
      SoftRock-IF radio choice, how much bandwidth do you see? What about if you
      use the basic SoftRock position, using the LO frequency to define the
      center of the display range.
