2356 UTC S9+ Super Audio feed!! Quick copy thx for the show... Thats one kicking signal...
Is some over it with QRM? Something is not quite right..?
0114 UTC Solid S9++ audio is still kicking. So I played with Chip box RSP filter and band width.. The audio is unreal SSB. Thx
0145 UTC Still S9+  These cheap rice boxes are cheating I think...
0151 UTC With the OP on a class sign off. with programing to match..
