Yepp... You can set your s units wherever you want...
Setting transponder noise to 0dvuv is just an easy to reproduce setting... And you can easy see levels avove noise as plus values...
Setting cw beacon to s9 or a few db above with s bit bigger dish givrs also "fair" reports
So that why i set it that way... Easier readout as positive numbers from 0dbuv upwards... And reports do match the s meter and readability 3by5 to 5by9
Ok some may say s3 as base is a bit high... And set that to s0...but for me above settings is easy... Give fair results.. And no need to calculate backwards from minus 104 to minus 86 dbm... (or whatever you have setup your scale)
