I'm missing the big picture.

Can I run both modes at the same time?  Or do I switch between them?

That sounds like they are running at the same time.

What does the output look like?  I'd expect beats so the signal would drop 
out for many cycles if I looked at the right place in time.  Is that sort of 
signal good for anything other than being a thermometer?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
