Even on my fairly noisy band the S3 does well with MS signals

That's impressive. Demonstrates how good the Console RDS is these days, too.

I now have my 8 element innov Yagi on a rotator. Running with RDSSPY at the same time it was very close and I know how I can improve my detector when I have time.

Yes, SDRC's RDS decoder really is very good now. If you can improve it even more Simon then bonus!!

I can improve it a bit, but both RDSSPY and Console are chasing the very last available bits...
