at least I agree with you :-). The Console levels do not show the real SNR but are rather comparable under the discussed circumstances. May be, Simon will find the motivation to implement another DSP-routines one day. Probably just like PowerSDR. It's level measurement works perfect.
In summary we are more than satisfied to have a program like the Console. All properties together give excellent satellite operation possibilities. Not to forget the Pluto. Who watched - as i did - over the last two years the deveplopment of this program has to bring a highly estimation to Simon.
By the way, a friend, DL4JAL, desinged an USB-Control-Unit with Audio in- and output, PTT-Switch and a generator for CW. More details can be found on his website. All the functions are summarized to one USB-Port, controlled by a PIC.
