I made the mod including the hardware mod and I am really impressed. The
sweep is fantastic. Everything sounds great. I worked 3Y0X two more times.
I am sure the new software was the secret ;-) Life is schweeeet.
I noticed the NR function has changed. Before the higher the number the
quicker it acted but the final amount of noise attenuation was always the
Now the higher the number the more the noise is attenuated. Nice change.
Everything is faster - not just the sweep. All the controls move faster
now. No more spinning and spinning the knobs.
I don't care if lowering the RF gain makes the S Meter go up. I thought it
was supposed to do that. It indicates minimum signal to get through. If I
hear you and the meter is on S7 that's what you are.
There is a strange tinny artifact in the CW sidetone that makes the
earphones ring like the old fashioned cans that used metal plates for
other way to describe it. I will count it as a positive nostalgic feature.
I don't do SSB so I can't comment on the processor and mike gain issues.
Thank you TT - it was worth the wait.
