[aprssig] Waveform (signal) on MX614 RXIN pin?

I have a TNC-X that uses that chip.  The schematic is here: <http://www.tnc-x.com/media/schematic.gif>.  Pin 5 is at 2.5 
VDC with about .1 volt peak to peak ac when a packet signal is present.

Further, signals get clipped at the 2V, I see the bottom halves of the sine waves below this 2V clipping, but never anything above it.
