Re: [linrad] Sound card problem?

Hi Matthieu,

  One of my older sound cards has this problem (leakage from the output to
the input). Makes for some pretty wierd sounding CW when the leak freq. is
close to the real signal freq.

For example if I set the pitch at 600Hz and set a medium audio output level then I can see a strong spur centered on 600Hz on the fft and on the waterfall display. If I click on a frequency near the spur then the level of the spur increases but with the processing delay.
