Actually I did some further testing and the use of derotator has a very bad
side effect - it reduces the available SNR. The higher is derotator_freq,
the lower is SNR. In my setup, when derotator is set for > 9 MHz, I can't get 
the lock anymore (of course I have properly shifted the tuning frequency).
It's far better to perform normal tuning, which does not reduce the SNR.

Thus I'd suggest to remove the enhanced tuning section and use standard
tuning for zigzags.

	With kind regards,
