This is the latest one.

Yes. Nobody yet answered to my request for 'challenges'.
I need real life recordings from those situations where
a limited bandwidth blanker will outperform the wideband

No. The dumb and the smart blankers operate on timf2. There is not
yet any blanker on timf3. I will add it when I have received a 
couple of files with recordings from HF bands with lightening
crashes or other kinds of interference that is pulse-like but
that is distorted due to multi-path propagation or otherwise
in a way that makes the wideband blankers inefficient.

Yes. Linrad is actually VERY complicated in that it has so many
modes of operation. I have avoided to discuss most of the complications
that are 'technical' in nature and tried to focus more on those
that have some fundamental significance.

I hope different users can interact and perhaps find out
clever things that I never thought about myself:-)

I have to leave for home tomorrow. 

When back home I will be very busy for a while, but I will save this
mail and check your sites some day after X-mas.
