Seventy three qrs uh we’ll keep moving down the line here. We’Ll try one more thing: we’ll uh try the shift here. We’Re gon na go ahead and put the shift back to zero and now we’re gon na narrow the band see how that makes a difference. We have a narrower bandwidth here of 1950, now we’re expanding it back out, so it makes it a little bit more sharper all right. Well, this has kind of been a quick videos. Propagation was running so we decided to go ahead and put it up. I’Ll put everything back to normal i’m, going to put everything back where it is i’m, going to put the width back to 2400, which is the default and i’m going to make sure. The uh shift is also a zero and it is, and the dnr i’m going to turn it off. Applause Music really does make a difference. Okay, this is kind of just we’ll uh hope you enjoyed the video it’s kind of a live demonstration. I do have some bad news, though. Unfortunately my yaesu has experienced a problem on the fm uhf side. We were transmitting and getting very little power and we started smelling smoke coming out. So we decided to go ahead and try it on the hf side which it seems to be holding. So i think, from a troubleshooting standpoint, the factory can at least focus on the vhf and uh side, but unfortunately half the half of my rig is dead.
So all i can talk on is hf right now.
