Sorry to take this thread off-topic slightly, but have you compared the
reception of USB and PCI devices?  I'm currently using a "new" Nova-t
card, which seems better than my "old" (i.e. the very first version)
Nova-t, but I'm still getting occasional dropouts.

Would you recommend I try one of the two USB boxes you mention?

Thanks,

Dave.
