What kind of rates are your getting for 607, 570, 576 and CDYab? Assuming the common 32 have a rate of .0025, it appears that FTDNA's unique 5 would have to average .0116 to get the overall average you have.

I would suggest .0025 and .0036 for the 1-25 and 1-37 panels.
At any rate, the FTDNA numbers are far too high. Chandler suggests
a factor of two. We disagree on that exact number.
