Thanks. I've got a working radio and don't want to mod it (I
have no use for CW and want it pretty much stock) - I was hoping

just like to be able to operate - and actually make some

hoping to get FT8 going with it (maybe even PSK31), so I can
use it. It seems sensitive enough, and for FT8 (or other
protocols), the power out should be sufficient.
Is there some way to get WSJT-X to function with lower
Also, a minor problem - the radio board is microphonic when

non-conductive object. Trying to use the radio for SSB - the
feedback is very irritating - like an echo circuit. (It would
be nice to be able to use the radio as intended - if I can get
through/past the Kilowatt crowd.)
Any suggestions on what component might be the problem? (At
lower volume levels, you just about cannot tell that it's
