Audio crackling and popping
I operated CQWW CW remotely this weekend and noticed a significant audio popping and crackling. My remote internet service is rock solid. I even noticed the popping when testing the system at home (over a wireless hotspot) before deployment.
Flex 6600 (v3.3.32), PGXL, SmartSDR for Mac on the remote MacBookPro; N1MM+ running local to the Flex on an i5 8th gen NUC running Windows 10. I connected to the remote directly via VPN (SoftEther) AND non-VPN using SmartLink. Results were the same either way.
The crackling and popping made CW copy difficult. I've operated remote many times and have not experienced the cracks and pops to this degree. Could this be related to the (significantly high) number of spots on the panadapter?
Thanks in advance.
