    Are there any over the air recordings of radios tuned by Paul or Mike (besides the recording I made of one of Mikes customers) so we can make an informed choice?

    Hahaha, I'm not a rookie, you're not going to rook me. I haven't seen anything in any fine tune videos that shows him doing anything except pushing buttons. When we hear him speaking on his rig he's in the same room as the recording microphone so how do I know if the audio is coming from a radio or is just picked up by proximity to the recording mic????
    In the video I posted Paul figured out where the voltage loss was, showing his procedures, then figured out that antenna switcher, reverse engineered it, etched his own design, showing the viewer how it's done (fine tune is "hiding" his secrets I suppose lol lol lol) then Paul shows how to bias the P/A correctly reinstall the thermistors and using freq counters, current meters and voltage meters. Nothing to hide and no narcissistic bull crap.

    Recorded by a third party. Real easy to do. Nobody seems interested in doing this. I wonder why?

    What is Mark hiding? Why does he not show himself with an iron in hand making a repair or resolving a "golden screwdiver's" screw up? All he says is "pay attention" then pushes buttons on his scope or sinead but no actual work. How about you point us in the direction of him actually doing work Mmm kay...:rolleyes:

    Looked at ten seconds of that video when I noticed the radio in that video isn't in operation. If it was especially on USB the meter section would show movement. Still unconvincing.

    I was actually thinking the same thing recently, never see him making any repairs or such. Not a hater, just an observation.

    After listening to the audio It sounds like shit. It's not a bandwidth thing because <3k wide ssb from a decent radio sounds much better . It's obvious the radio in the video is just a still picture so I'm not sure what mode is being used. If this was recorded using AM the audio is terrible. It sounds like you stuck a straight pin through the mic element.
