OK. Good! Several times a few percent should add up to a significant

Check your memory usage. Maybe part of the Linrad data area is
swapped to your hard disk. Ask for minimum storage times in case
this could be the problem. You use only 70% of the CPU and there should
no choppy output until you are very close to 100%. Maybe it could
help to set a smaller limit for the DMA rate. That could be the
cure to allow other programs steal large time chunks without
destroying Linrad performance. (Except for the longer antenna to
loudspeaker delay - but another 50 ms more would not hurt on
microwaves I guess.)
