John, go into your menu system (press and hold fast button, and at the same
time press the enter button) rotate to the 2-9 selection using the Sub
Receiver tuning knob. When there, use the Main Receiver tuning knob to
choose between the three options, in this case choose the SELEct option.
For either notch to work, the Notch button must be pressed until the green
light turns on. When the Notch button is green, the Manual IF Notch is now
functional. Just rotate the IF Notch knob for the performance you want. To
turn on the DSP notch (while the Notch Button is Green), press the EDSP
button so it is Green. Now the Auto Notch is active too. If you dont want to
use the manual notch at the same time as the auto notch, turn the manual
notch knob it all the way to one side ( I normally have it full clockwise).
Whats the value of this? When tuned to a weak signal and a strong signal is
nearby, the manual IF notch works upstream in the IF stages and will knock
down the actual signal strength of the stronger signal, allowing for an
improved copy of the weak signal. Put agc to fast or off, and you will be
able to copy the nearby weak signal with out the IF Gain (ie S meter) value
being brought down or pumped by the stronger signal in the passband. Also
use the passband tuning and filter selections to help out in this situation.
DSP notch doesnt work far enough up stream in the IF stages to proved this
benefit (in this radio).
That is why manual notch and filters bring so much value to system
performance independently and ahead of the DSP system.
Use a program like TRX-Manager to see a bar display showing the effect on
received bandwidth (Enable EDSP program). Or use any other audio program
that shows your audio spectrum output. You will see mostly a flat response
when no options are being used, and the effects of filter selection, if
notches, passband and shift/width controls have on what you hear as you
select / adjust them.
