Re: Reporting Standard for AO-40

As most of us using Self-modified uncalibrated IF for our Downconverter, I
raise the issue of  standard reporting on AO-40.
My system (with Drake 2880), receive the Beacon as S8 (at most) with noise
floor at S2 (6 S-unit lower).
When I receive a station at S7, I give them 5/9.
When I receive at S6, I give 5/8.
So the report is always based on MB reception  (MB always counted as 10dB
over S9).
