Re: UBW Tuning offset
- Hello Christos,
Yep, I couldn't see why the controller needed to do anything when it is sitting on one frequency. The noise _is_ different in my system on PSDR, but it's not a problem now the IF frequency has been set. While moving the IF, I calibrated the frequency against the RWM 9996kHz standard, which is also adjustable in that "expert" box.
I have gone over to the Edirol FA-66 for now, which has 192kHz, so the centre is well out of the way!
Expect I will have more questions/comments soon ;)

The smooth tune algorithm you refer to is only used during a change of frequency and at no other time and also is evident only in frequencies above 20m, below that, the band noise covers the frequency change produced noise.
