Without using a Noise Generator in front of your RX and without
switching it ON and OFF, tuning the front end circuit of your receiver
for maximum swing of the noise level on the Digital Multimeter,
it is possible that your actual 1.1 volt is corresponding to maximum
gain and before the original 0.45 volt was corresponding correctly
to minimum Noise Figure and so to maximum sensitivity.
In a separate email I have sent to you the schematic diagram of a
very simple diode Noise Generator.
