Re: Signal Strength Display on Ultralight Receivers


RE:  I still prefer a good old analog "S" meter though. Especially when calibrated properly

However an "S" meter even perfectly calibrated to meet the prevailing standard for it also does not take into account the antenna factor or gain of the antenna used by the receiver.

As with the Ultralights, an "S" meter indication is based on the conducted r-f voltage present across the antenna input terminals of the receiver, and does not display the real field intensity of the arriving r-f signal.
