Hi Rick,

To be honest I haven't decided. It depends on what the interference situation is tomorrow. I shut the 435.300 transmitter off so there was enough power to turn the digital transmitter on for some quick telemetry. To be honest I didn't notice the carrier until after I turned 300 back on. 

We'll see how things go tomorrow.

73, Drew
