Whatever you do, don't tell Fansome about this. He thinks SDR's are worse than the FRN and penguins.

Ironically, my NRD-515 has 10 knobs, 5 toggle switches, and 3 push buttons on the front panel. So, tuning in this broadcast consisted of the following steps.
1-Flick toggle switch to On position
2-Twirl Big Megahertz knob to 6 MHZ
3-Twirl Big Kilohertz knob to 6925 KHZ
4-Flick Fine Tune toggle switch to ON position
5-Twirl Mode knob to desired postion
6-Twirl Audio Gain knob to desired position
7-Twirl Fine Tune knob to desired position
8-Twirl RF knob, PBT knob, and AGC knob as necessary
9-Flick Noise Blanker and Attenuation knobs as necessary.
10-Push Lock button
11-Listen to SDR broadcast!
And if that isn't enough, you should see all the buttons and stuff on my Yamaha KX-W952 Dual Dubbing Deck!
Oh, and I forgot about the MFJ-901B Versa-Tuner...that has a couple of adjustments too!

So, Al...what's all this talk about Penguins? They always seem to be well dressed and standing proudly :)
