I am attempting to correct the thermal drift on my 580 Delta PTO, by using a 
Direct Digitally Synthesized VFO as a remote VFO.  The DDS output is said to be 
~500mV P-P (I've not measured it myself).  To date, I had no success.  I wonder 
if anyone else on this reflector has successfully done this and can point me in 
the right direction.  The unit I'm trying is the one by N3ZI.
Other "fixes", such as PTO rebuild, and the K4DPK unit have worked well for 
many other hams, but not me.  The drift is definitely in the PTO, defintely 
thermally induced and does not settle out after hours of on time, so this is my 
latest effort at ending it.
thanks,  ~Lee, W1IDZ
