Re: Understanding Spurious Emissions

Got it. Thanks. I never saw on my uBitx the numbers you reported, but I don't think it is a serious problem for a barefoot uBitx, which is the main point I was trying to make. It seemed like the group was spending a lot of energy on something that is like driving 60 MPH in a 55 zone.

The mixer where the spur is generated is the mixer formed by T2/T3 that is about 
28db (after allowing for filter losses and all)  later in the stream and if that mixer

Work it backward.  If that mixer is overloaded at -7 oir -10DBM what got to be
happening well before that?   And that mixer can easily be driven to its 1DB
compression or worse without hurting the audio to the ear.
