I've had this radio into the shop twice now for alignment issues. For some reason when i'm on am or fm if I tune the radio 2 khz lower people come in louder with more signal. I also come in louder and have more signal to them. ssb doesn't have this problem. The tech that work on it said it's probably due to the way the crystal is cut and the circuitry that controls it. The only other person I know who runs this radio has the same issue. Any other dx99v2 owners notice this? As far as I can remember my 949 and the older 99v didn't have this problem. steve.
