I am not having success eliminating the image spur. I am looking for directions on how to do this on the Linrad site. In the Linrad program I have been trying to:
C= cal FREQ response
at next menu
A= Balance spurs
I select any number of segments to 256 and move my SIG gen until it is all green. After I U=update correction in ram and then S=save correction in ram; I do this 2 times and X back to Regular CW. I don't see any difference in performance or screen appearance.

I will be using Linrad to do VHF and above contesting in the US. I have all of your hardware through 70 MHz and am patiently waiting for the 144 MHz converter to become available. I will be obtaining at least one more set of boxes after I get this receiver working. The quality of the commercial RX2500 and converters is fantastic. I am a manufacturer in the US and am amazed at how these units could have been produced at this low cost.
