Interestingly, when I first click on the WNB it appears to do nothing BUT in 1 to 1.5 seconds it takes out this particular noise and keeps it out with no effect on quality of weak signals in the band pass.
Really slick. I'm glad to have both noise blankers!
Exactly my observation too. For weeks I thought WNB was doing nothing so left it turned off. One day recently I found some odd local QRM wideband noise that filled the waterfall from side-to-side at about 40% coverage. I turned on the WNB and my jaw dropped as I observed the magic happening. The side-to-side QRM was replaced by a smile from ear-to-ear!
So, the moral of the story, you need to have the right type of noise for WNB!

Bob, your noise type is clearly not compatible! I have learned that it takes time and patience to get the right results out of the noise mitigation features. You need to observe and understand what/how to use them in any given situation. The first step is to study the noise form. There is no magic bullet (or SDR button) that works in all cases when it comes to the multitude of noise types and sources we find on the bands.

The problem with 'oh, you don't have the right noise" is that it begs the response, "no, I dont have the right noise mitigation tool". The former being a terse dismissal of the users situation, effectively blaming the customer.
In fairness, I don't recall Steve, Gerald, or Tim ever saying the former. It's all in the messaging.
Don't judge me guys, I'm old.
