Many thanks. This is all very useful information. One particular difficulty
I find is that the program forgets the audio input channel selection when I
close the program -- I have to re-select the correct channel each time I
start the program.

Understood on multi-path etc, but Per's signal was very strong and sharp on
the display. I also checked with Fldigi (after shutting down PSKmail), and
Fldigi copied everything.

I also tried to connect with different modes -- each time, the server
responded in the same mode, but still no decoding.

Ian, G3NRW
