Subject: RE: [softrock40] Fresh Software - 20050917 level
I downloaded the update and when I try to turn on the SDR software, I
get no response and it goes imediately back to STANDBY. I do not have a
SoftRock 40 hooked up yet. I don't think anything has changed on my system,
but I will reboot and check everything out if that doesn't fix it. Any
ideas? The previous versions worked fine.
I get a constant loud rough-sounding dit-dah-dit..., without anything
connected. I still get it when playing one of the wav files.

When I operate on the low bands (40M thru 160M) I have to turn off my
PC's. In fact I sometimes have had to unplug them completely, as the
power supply isn't completely off when the On/Off switch is in the Off
I found the problem to be caused by the computer's switching power
supply. In fact I lost a power supply in one of my computers recenly,
and replaced it with a better grade supply, and then was happy to find
that the noise from that computer was gone.
Try unplugging your computer completely and see if that quiets things
