Re: SM60 II views poorer than SM40s - Why?

Hi and welcome to the site.There is a pin on the side of the SMll unit that can be adjusted to set the tuning range for your altitude. Unscrew it using a small shifter or long nose pliers.

Hi Randall, I've got the same setup and have no issues. If you post a picture of your setup, it might help us identify the problem.
