Listening on 3.875 AM and the receive starts out fine but within 20 seconds it starts getting distorted to where I cannot receive the audio. This happens on SAM also. Changing modes then back to AM or SAM restores the audio but it again gets distorted quickly.

Makes AM reception unusable.

Are you using ANF, NR, or NB?

I was listening to Radio China last night on 40m with SAM and didn't experience that.  They were 59+20 and 20K wide.  It does sound like interaction with NR or NB.

Figured it out. Was a corrupted config file in DDUtil wreaking havoc on SSDR.

Reset config file in DDUtil, then reconfigured my settings and AM is working fine now.
