Hi David,

Please study my example that led me to a different meaning. Sorry for technical terms...

" The DSP noise didn’t affect normal operation. For
example, the FT-450 made it possible for me to work 3B7C on 40 meter CW, since my own transceiver was on the fritz."

I first interpreted it that my own transmitter was aimed at the fritz while I was watching him on the FT-450.

Substituting your meaning instead of "on the fritz" gives a possible solution, that is my own transceiver was in faulty condition.

It would need more fluent English in my head to go further into the issue...

Anyway, fritz is a German, mainly soldier as far as I know.
