    CW and (very little) SSB though, I'm not fond of FT8.

    Wish I knew why FT-8 is so popular. I guess the only way to find out is to try it . . . It just seems rather ridiculous to look at a list of one liner connections to various entities in DX land. Even a short voice exchange with a DX station is interesting, as you make a connection that might later develop into a nice friendship. But having your radio/computer making the connection and saying 73? Where's the joy in that? I connected last night with two stations in Russia and one in Belarus, and spoke about classical music and interests we had in common. Amateur radio can be the "glue" that brings us together as humans - but probably not with FT-8.

    The instructions for setting the RX level in Windows 10 is very poor. To set it exactly so you don't get clipping on strong signals while making use of the full resolution :-
    1) Go to sound settings.
    2) Select 'speakers (usb audio codec)' as the output.
    3) Click on 'device properties'.
    4) Click on 'additional device properties'.
    5) Select the levels tab.
    6) Right click on the level meter and choose 'decibels'.
    7) Set to 0.0dB
    8) Click OK and go back and reset your default output device to what it was originally.

    I am using ICOM 7300 with iMac Big Sur operating system and it is working fine for me with the preset selection on the update firmware for the ICOM 7300
