I suppose PR1 comes after the de-emphasis circuit, your setup works
better that way if you are receiving most traffic from radios that
feed the transmit audio to the mic line or to the 1200 bps packet
connector, with pre-emphasis.

If your customers are mostly D7/D700/D710's, i.e.without pre-emphasis,
or 9600 bps, your best bet is PR9.
