Speaking of Orion irregularities, has anyone noticed this issue:
Set both receivers to the same band and same antennas....
Enable the 20 kHz filter...
Tune in a signal on the sub-receiver....
Set the main receiver 14 kHz ABOVE the subreceiver frequency.....
Do you receive the same signal on both receivers??
