Don, Brett said they sound much better using WINRAD, but I have not been
able to get it to run. The other thing, I wonder how many receivers Collins,
National, and the other great manufacturers would have sold if it hours to
run the stupid things? I bet I have 30 to 40 hours fooling with it. It
does make a great bandscope, and an excellent piece of test gear. And they
are not terribly expensive. Bernie
