    The OCLT was written with the assumption that you would be completing a SLAM and thus the FC would be up at/near shock level.
    While you may not need to raise the FC up quite that high if just doing a check, at maintenance FC levels, a 1ppm loss could be excessive, IMO.

    Yeah, I kinda thought that, pumped it up last night to shock level and lost 1ppm with no cc and I am clear.
    So tonight there realy wouldn't be a need to go check it out. Tomorrow is the day for my CYA test hope it will give me some sort of reading.
