If you look at the schematic the buffer amp is in circuit all the time but a 
resistor is switched in and out in parallel with the feedback resistor around 
the amp. Looks like amp gain is being changed...... This is why I had 
originally looked at changing the feedback resistor that was switched in for 
9k6 to increase the gain and make it a bit easier to deviate at 9k6.
