with ref to the attached note from K9KJ - I would have preferred to have
sent a personal to Tom, but thought others may like to see my
opinions directly !
Tuned vs flat front end preferences - this to me largely depend on
whether you are a 12/10m user (tuned), or other (flat) - there is
definitely more gain on 12/10 in the tuned position, i tend to use flat
everywhere else=2E I have operated on 40m lete -nite; even there, I have
found situations where the extra gain is needed in the flat setting
(when the band appears to be about to fold, and weak DX)=2E
I wished this was saved as preferred band options - more use to me
than remembering IRT position on a band for example !
TX EDSP - to me, I don't like having TX EDSP dependent on if you have RX
EDSP enabled - this ought to be independently selectable=2E In all the
tests I have done with repected people's opinions, best results are
obtained without using EDSP on TX !! I use a Heil insert for contesting,
and still have more favourable opinions with this=2E
I will E-mail you separately Tom ref=2E RX EDSP settings (on Monday)
