After more or less a full day where I made almost ever mistake possible (exaggerating) on gettin my Softrock Lite built (which it is, except for connectors, it's ready for final testing), I put the grabber back up in receive mode. I didn't bother to get the WSPR beacon back up for now, but that will return shortly. Scanning through backlog didn't reveal too much of interest, except for a very brief 15 minute period where VE1VDM and W1BW were booming in. Here's an exemplar:
I also noted that my frequency stability is vastly improved without the thermal cycling of transmit going on. Lines appear flat, nobody is wandering up and down, proving rather conclusively that it was me.
