Re: AO-40 data mode



 You could use one of the wide IF front end's sold by Symek. I have a 76k
wide front end IF on my 847, that allows a bypass front-end filtering second
input for a 38k6 baud modem. This also would  allow you to easily find your
d/l(and most everyone else's) , for those of you who are, or have friend's
who are  'find your d/l challenged'

doppler anymore.
