    For the R-CDC setup Menu, I AND N are not input and output they are Inverted and Normal receive Digital.

    The I inverts the phase of the digital signal with respect to the N phase, this phase inversion may be required depending on the phase of the transmitted station.

    I'm not going to openly slam his reviews and videos but all of the comments here are accurate. Some of his longer reviews are 30 minutes and don't cover basic info.

    The sad part is that some newer hams learn everything they know about ham radio from videos like this that are full of bad information.

    OP needs to learn about FCC equipment authorization. The Chinese put meaningless FCC logos and other markings on a lot of products that aren't FCC certified.

    I agree with the other critics. Disappointing video. Colossal waste of time. I can read written product specifications 15 times faster than anyone can talk about them, and learn more in the process. Sheesh! What a bore - watching somebody open a birthday present. And I care nothing about how it is packaged - there is nothing new or interesting in that. "Un-boxing" videos are for high school kids pretending they are audiophiles showing off a new pair of $40 headphones, and proclaiming them the best ever before plugging them into a their phones.

    This MIGHT have been interesting and helpful had it been a carefully researched review of its features, capabilities, foibles and peccadilloes, based on extended experience. Perhaps he will have to return it to the vendor before he has any significant or substantial experience with it.

    Worse yet are the painfully slow moving and poorly prepared "Ham College" videos. Shoot, in one episode they screwed around and chitty-chatted over coffee for more than 9 minutes, before admitting they could remember the topic! Nice guys ... poor product.

    Yep - we have way too many self-appointed celebrities pretending they are experts, and the rest of us are helpless without them.

    That's just MY take, anyway. I think I will wait for the book to come out. JR
