GRABBER STATUS - Normal Operation


Please note that grabber is now using MS One Drive for recent history display as Google Drive failed yet again.

*** NB. *** I have changed back to a full spectrum of the 472-479 kHz band as the split arrangement was messy & confusing.

I have also changed the oscillator crystal frequency in the SoftRock SDR hoping to get a better 472-479 kHz band display.
