From the way I read this you are supporting the case that the R500
has good error CONCEALMENT. Of course, it could be reading much
better. What happens to the error display on the R500 at the point
where the DDS glitched?
As to DOING this...no thanks. I want to find someone who regularly
does this so I know where to send people. I have enough "R&D"
projects on my plate.
