I have a used Signal Sleuth I bought last year, it is used with my Magnum Dynalab Etude tuner. I don't think I have your problem per say, but I've noticed the sweet spot to dial in the best gain from a weak station does not appear to be the exact same frequency setting on the sleuth dial. My experience is this: for the $270 or so I paid used for this item, it MAYBE improves the sound 5-7% or so... it also amplifies the noise and hiss also.. I have not personally found it to be a really great piece of equipment and it does not make the kind of improvement I imagined it would. It does work, it just doesn't make, to me, a weak station suddenly jump out all clean and crisp like a strong station.
