Thanks Alan for the info on the display of the spectrum without the I/Q line plugged into the soundcard.
I did find another or maybe a related error of my ways though and had clipped a lead on U9 or one of the FST3253 switches when I was cleaning up soldering. Ordered another from K5NWA website.
You pretty much solder these little boogers right the first time or just start all over with a new chip! ;o)
