Hi all-

I'm trying to build a multi-reciever program modelled on the stuff in
multi_antenna directory, however there seems to be a problem with the
multi_fft and multi_scope programs.  I have 2 LF daughterboards, and I'm
using a function generator to send a 1 kHz sine wave with .1 V p-p
I start either the _fft or _scope program with the arguments -d 250 -f

What I'm observing is a very distorted signal; the distortion appears to
be due to the presence of significant energy in some harmonics away from
Hz.  I can remove them if I sharpen the default filter, but I have to
a cuttoff very close to my 1 khz to clean it up.  What is going on?  I
have two images, one for the scope and one for the fft at:

The standard and do not show these harmonics
and the signal is very clean.

Any suggestions?
