    I've hooked a Symek IFD board up in an FT-736R with no problems.  I got 
good (90+%) efficiency on UO-36.  I just followed the directions...   I 
know for sure of at least one other individual who has his working fine 
also.  There are now quite a few guys out there in the queue on 
UO-36.  Given the popularity of the FT-736R, I'm sure several of them must 
also have the boards in use.  If you're still having problems, drop Ulf an 
e-mail at Symek.  I'm sure he can help your sort it out.  I suppose it's 
possible that your IFD board may have a problem.
