FM is also difficult to measure (75khz modulation) you have to wait
for the music to stop to get an accurate reading (and the DJ to shut up)
I use a digital scanning receiver with a frequency counter permanantly
connected to the 10.7mhz 1st. IF out (it also has a 455khz output)
it serves as a tuning aid and a quick guide to the stations status
(licensed or pirate)

Is it true that they have, on the new version of windows
managed to increase the MTBF from 95 to 98 minutes ?
(That's why they called it 95)
