Hi Mike,

I have the same behaviour here. When I use fldigi without opening the
connection to pskmail (before I start pskmail that is) the AFC button
works. When I start pskmail then fldigi will start to use AFC no matter
what the AFC button indicates. So, I would label that a bug in fldigi
(found using fldigi 3.04AX).

I have tried the option "Check button toggle for sql and AFC" under
Misc/Main window in config but that had no effect on this.
What you can do to limit the problem is to use the options for a pskmail
server (which works for a client also) within Modem/Psk. If you enable
"use sweetspot" and limit the AFC search range then that will help.
