Good tip.... I just reset my SignaLink USB Rx control to 12 O'Clock (mid
position and bumped up my TS-570S Menu #34 (RF Output) to 8 on the
1 to 9 scale. Now I can get the expected looking waterfall on fldigi 3.13BV
using the 0 and 60 settings.
I think it depends on band conditions.
Seems to be working great now
