Stefan, Markus and Jean Pierre F1AFJ (Grabber service),
Thanks for the
report, Stefan. I am happy you have something nice to
say about my
sigs. Its good that they are reaching you when we are so
close to the
They were also quite strong around that time on Jean Pierre's
As for Markus, he provided what I asked for --
and now I must say his
very critical report is most gratefully received.
:-) The problem seems to
have disappeared after the 10 MHz input to the
AD9851 was boosted with
a BJT amp. The original interface simply offset
the 1.5 V p/p
to 2.5V DC; the new one bosted it to 0-3V which is more in line

due to RF interfering with the weak 10 MHz input.
I will be happy
to try OP32 on another frequency soon.
Thank-you very much for the good
news and thanks all around.
The TX is now again QRV on QRSS30. (2330
