Hi Ron,

Haven't tried 6.64 yet.  Was anything done about not being able to set 
the decay time beyond 63 min or so?  I would like to be able to set it 
to, say, 4 hours as it makes S&P much easier.  i.e. I don't have to wait 
ten minutes for the guy to give his call when I'm tuning by if I've 
already got him on the bandmap.

The comments about sbdvp make me think I'll wait 'til that's cleared up 
before upgrading.
