At the moment I'm just making sure everything's kosher on the TX side -
i.e., the relative levels of the tones are right as they exist on-air.
Proper deemphasis is a separate problem.

Tell me about it.

At least I'm now able to directly verify that the preemphasis filter in my
T2 board for the DR-135T is working right.  The internal connection isn't
preemphasized, and I didn't want to make the TM-D700's mistake of
transmitting flat when everyone else is expecting 6 dB/octave.

Oh, and on an unrelated note, I've got support for the La Crosse WS-2300
series weather stations in the Tracker2 now.  Haven't been able to back-port
it to the OpenTracker yet, but I'm working on it.  If anyone has a station
they want to test out (plus an OpenTracker or T2) let me know.
