[CQ-Contest] Careful About those Clicks

Before we have a passionate frenzy of 5NNK-ing, be sure:

a) The preamp is OFF
b) The noise blanker is OFF
c) The DSP functions are OFF
d) The clicks are still there if you turn down the RF gain and/or change AGC

Any of those things can cause your receiver to freq out close to a very
strong signal.  And, of course, all of us Big Time Contesters will have the
Big Signals...

If someone is really clicking/buzzing/chirping/spurring, they need to know
about it.
