[AMRadio] I just got an OO card.

Like you, Mike, I had a stupid one that couldn't be fixed.  I got one 
for a "wide RTTY signal", running true FSK.  I did get a good friend (in 
same state as the OO) check my shift from his end, after I had checked 
it.  He verified to be 170, although there's no problem with 850 if you 
choose it.

I did email him to tell him what I had learned, but while getting his 
address, I looked on the OO's QRZ page and saw the VERY cheap Yaesu 
transceiver he uses and just decided as you did, you can't fix stupid.  
Never heard any more though.
