Thetis 2.6.0- Diversity

Postby mark1161 » Mon Aug 13, 2018 12:23 am

Good Evening All,

I have been using Thetis v2.6.0 for the last two weeks and, for the most part, is performing as expected. One thing I can't figure out is why Diversity is not allowing me to lower the noise level as it did with PowerSDR in RX. When I try to make the adjustment using the Diversity utility, it has no effect on the RX quality. Am I missing something in the Settings?

Thanks
Mark

What might actually be the case is that you were using PowerSDR incorrectly. "Diversity" cannot lower the atmospheric noise level. When mis-configured it is possible to think this is what you are seeing, but if you look at things carefully you will also see levels drop on real signals as well. Read here to understand why this is the case.
