Thanks to all, and programmer's efforts are much appreciated!
Hope I'm not pushing my luck today, another topic raised!

Ah,

I usually use fast attack, nice catch. Thing is, the gain isn't set until the radio is started, so it must be that the gain's being set too soon and the radio needs a while to 'warm up'.

Pity the poor programmer :( .
Hello Simon,

From my observation, I can see that the RX hardwaregain is not correctly set on first start of the Radio (after powering on the Pluto). My Pluto starts with a default gain of 71 (see also viewtopic.php?f=6&t=186). So it may very well be a subtle timing issue.

This is the next thing I'll look at - Pluto is on and running, been playing with my map & CQ/ITU zones yesterday evening/this morning.
