Thank you again for the input. Not sure if you noticed but my prior thread was about broken packets. I couldnt fix it so have decided to see if building my own image and using a later version will work. I notice a thread elsewhere which involved a code change, so I can now apply that if needs be.

BTW the issue here, I embarrasingly had forgotten to attachs the antenna... all working now, though I am not sure if the corrupt packets are being allowed through or not yet. Will test.
