Hello Bob, W7LRD

You writes that you are receiving Arecibo with signals peaking 569 As far I
know a report of signal strengt of 6 means that the S meter is moving from
S1 with no signal and swing to S6 under signal.

My question is the following:

Is your S meter swinging from S1 to S6 under CW or SSB signals or it is
steady over S6 only because of the noise of your preamplifier ?

Please let us know
