SNR meter, bandwidth and gain adjustment for transverters


Conrad, PA5Y
 

Hello Simon.

I asked about the main dB scale in the receiver window and how it relates to bandwidth, you did not reply. I see that the question has been asked before, What exactly does it display? Also, the SNR reading does not change with filter BW, surely it should. How does the SNR meter work? For instance, it shows a positive SNR where there is no signal present in the filter passband so perhaps it is finding the max a signal in a wide passband? It would be better if it only looked inside the filter BW.

Finally, as a feature request would it be possible to have some manual gain adjustment to compensate for transverters and LNAs?

Many thanks
