A few good catches on June 21 when the local 105.3 and 107.5 had an outage! Some more luck with the RDS for idents, but it'd be far more productive if more US stations would utilize it. Some were come across with it but no transmitted text! Having to switch the antenna between the two receivers (via a BNC connector to the attenuator pad) hampered things a bit. Also, the tape audio line is only to the TM-1001 so there was always a risk of missing something with it. The Kenwood's 18 memories could be set for the "most likely" channels for quick checking (but the lack of any fine tuning or an s-meter on it was a definite drawback). 73, Pat - WA5IYX
