Re: [linuxham] Tip of the Day: fldigi was not keying the Rig
- Some issues are not worth fixing. The DX station was operating simplex too close to band edge. I use USB-DATA mode for all digital work and don't care to fool around with LSB-DATA to compensate for a DX station working top close to the band edge. The purpose of the posting was to explain why the rig was not being keyed by fldigi.Dick AA5VUOn Mar 26, 2013, at 4:41 AM, firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:

It then dawned on me the low end of the 17 Meter band is 18068.00 and the TS-590S prevented me from transmitting out of band at 18067.9.
> I have seen this problem before when DX stations are working on the low end of the band… like 140001. i would rather not do the CB mod to make the TS-590S transmit anywhere. It is only a problem when the DX is working on the very low edge of the band.

be in band.
