Even for 9K6 on UHF?  I'll try increasing the time on a pass this  
evening if I can get back into the shack.

I'm seriously thinking of moving the whole lot up into the attic,  
server, radio, modems the lot.  Though then I would be without a  
radio in the shack, hmm might look out for something else suitable  
second hand.

Thanks for the reply,
