** Personal 'First'

This is the first time I have used the recording scheduler on the S2 and it worked first time. I programmed in five x one hour long recording slots around sunrise for each 6 MHz portion of the band. What a great feature! I hope this can be built upon in future software updates as I feel some improvements can be made. But as it stands you have to re-programme virtually all the parameters of each recording session manually, however it's not complicated once you've got the hang of it. Too many 'famous last words' here. Let's see if the next recordings come out OK. :O)

Good DX!
