ZS6SS, Selwyn sk
With deep regret we must announce the passing of our RPN friend Selwyn Staples, ZS6SS.
He went silent already on Saturday 22nd October 2016.
Unfortunately this message took way too long until we got notice of it.

SCS Tracker FW 1.7 d (Delta)

You may want to adjust the 800mV when AF-input (or MIC-gain) is already at minimum and ALC is not within limits yet.
