Should the panadapter show signals at the same level as displayed on a spectrum analyzer
Should the panadapter show signals at the same level as displayed on a spectrum analyzer? My 6700 is not doing that for the RXA and RXB inputs. I do not have anything connected to Ant1 or Ant2
I have a DEMI 2MLDPA amp connected to the 6700 RXB port and a Q5Signal L432 transverter connected to the 6700 RXA port. I measured the output of both boxes with a spectrum analyzer. The 6700 displays the signal on the RXB port -23dB LOWER than that of the spectrum analyzer, while the RXA port displays the signal -13db LOWER than that of the spectrum analyzer. Note, the panadapter displaying the signal on the RXA port is in WIDE mode.
Why are the panadapters showing different signal levels from that of a spectrum analyzer and is it a coincidence that the signal displayed in WIDE mode is closer to the actual value? Is there a way to have the 6700 display the signal levels closer to that of the signals going into the 6700?
Thank you for any help you may have on this matter!
