Marc, that is the symptom of needing the new heat sinks. You can tie wrap the old ones on until the new ones arrive if you need to. All heat sinks have shipped to those who requested them by mail.

Hi Thank Gerald

that possible since just start to got first true summer day here 21deg  ;-)  but 35 on the "container"
i have here stock small heatshink similar to original one but whit time proven adesive to (294-1146-ND)  ,so may try it when i return to the remote site ..

just curious/strange that got that symptom ,i assume it ADC and FPGA Clock go out of sync ?? 
but usually i use DCO signal for sync data bus capture  ...

p.s. seem your right after all about my RX gain ,not yet do deep test but whit calibrated signal source but make many EME  QSO during Dayton week-end  radio pre-amp off  ,still not got my echo but for now i look for other system component for find cause , so i probably own you a beer ;-)

Best regard

radio is back  , have improvised a PEN whit heat sinks i have on hand  , 1st have completely fall and second one  hold by a corner ...   , i also see a good reason for put it on backside  , bad glue is hard to remove  ,so better to put bit bigger one on the Back  side

have brigs whit me the FLIR camera but 45deg temperature inside  my remote station kill me
so i have keep work to stick bare minimum
