Re: Orbit 250 apogee



The converters and preamps shouldn't add to the nonlinearity unless they are
overloading the receiver.

However, many S-meters are not very accurate so, if the receiver AGC can be
disabled, connecting a VU meter or AC voltmenter to the audio output will
provide more accurate results. However, there are several products on the
market that don't have an AGC off switch so many are with S-meter readings.

If you want a receiver with an accurate S meter see QEX for May/June 2000
QEX.
