Ooh! A great episode with one member of a shadowy cabal.....LOL!
It’s not all that shadowy, they have a web page. :-)
LOVE the idea of the "contest audio" project - I even talked to Bob Heil about something like that a few years ago. Go for it!!
I don't like it when you have that guy on. His general demeanor is extremely condescending.
How so? I’m genuinely interested in more details. I don’t intend to be, so if I come across as demeaning, I’d like to know how to be better.

I really enjoy it when you have Smitty join the podcast. In contrast to the above comment, I do not find his demeanor condescending in the slightest. Please continue having his expertise available. Thanks. 73
Love Smitty. Would something like this work for the dual freq generator for receiver tests? https://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/data-sheets/AD9850.pdf
The AD chip is a good one. IIRC, it even has sine wave outputs. IR sine-ish. It’s on the list of chips to look at for this project. I’m still working on the Tx and Digital side so haven’t begun work on the Rx testing parts yet, other than to make sure I can add them to what I’m making now.
So, this podcast! It's so cool :)
It took a few weeks, but I finally found the logarithmic amplifier of my past. The reference was buried in a briefcase stored in a storage unit in Las Cruces, NM for the better part of a decade. (really)
