All afternoon on this FRQ my RTL received stations from 3975, but it was not at Icom.
 My way to verify mirrors by tuning LO, did not confirm that it was a ghost.
 It was only after the change of LO> Tune offset, that the station disappeared.
I gained one more experience.
      If you think that this is not  this topic, please remove it to technicals .

There was a station on 3975 between 1257 and 2050 here. But maybe you heard something else, I don't know.

How do you combine your Icom PCR1000 with your RTL-SDR ? Not the place here, but send me an e-mail (see in my profile), I could untangle that a bit before we move that to a technical forum.
