Re: Motorola Levels

A word of advice.

HIGH INPUT at the amp. Will improve Carrier to Noise.

HIGH OUTPUT will influence CTB and CSO.

My best results are when I set the output of all amplifiers to hit the next amp. at 2 dB higher than the noise figure of the amplifier in dBmV. Course all the amplifiers should all have the same output.

The cascade of a run of amplifiers should also be taken care will doing this.

I never used a Pad,  IN MID STAGE in my years of practice.
