What is Signal Strength Bar on Lower Right Hand Side of Window Indicating
Odd question here after all these years. I have a 6500 and I'm running the latest version of SmartSDR (v2.9.2). I have always run the radio through my wireless internet router but had a hardwire connection with my PC. So essentially, the radio has been plugged into the PC. The strength bar is always full scale and green.
I loaded SmartSDR onto my laptop computer a few days ago and noticed the SmartSDR bar indicates little to almost no signal strength and the output is choppy. I moved my laptop close enough to the wireless router that they were almost touching and the bad reading persisted.
The internet connection on LT itself always indicates full scale strength and an internet test shows I'm getting the full speed I'm paying for.
What is the SmartSDR indicator actually measuring and where would I start looking for the problem? I'd like to know what is being measured and where before start trying to trace down the problem.
This is one of those things that I just tried because I was board one afternoon and now it has become a challenge to make it work. Guess it goes with the hobby!
