I use a separate 20-year old 2-meter FM mobile rig for my uplink, and haven't tried using the 726 for an uplink yet. (There are just TOO MANY things going on, and I haven't had time to give it a whirl.) The 726R works okay, although my scope displays an eye diagram that isn't very open at its center due to some high frequency roll-off. I'm not sure whether this a result of my discriminator tap-off point selection or just the bandwidth of the receiver's IF filters. The 726R cannot be computer controlled. 73, de John, KD2BD -- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- John A.
