[aprssig] Waveform (signal) on MX614 RXIN pin?

Take a look at the block diagram on page 3 of <http://atic.phys.lsu.edu/aces/Docs/Component%20Docs/mx614.pdf>.  Pin 5 is 
the inverting input of an op-amp, pin 6 is it's output.  That is the reason why I see very little voltage on pin 5.

Yes, the signal on pin 6 is out of phase with the input due to the input being on the inverting input of the op-amp.

My belief is that the chip is (attempting to) scale the signal on pin 6 by feeding back a signal 180 out of phase. The resistor between 5/6 sets the bias, the cap controls the amplitude.. but I want to make sure this is the case.
