Re: AO-7 0057UTC Pass



Yeah, I've read that and tried to practice it, but a rule is useless when
only a few follow it.  When a majority of the operators still tune the
higher of the two freqs, there may be a "One True Rule for Doppler Tuning"
on paper, but in practice, it's worthless.

Besides, I *still* find it easier to tune the radio manually on the linear
birds.  I'll let the computer do the tuning on the FM birds.

Tnx es 73,
