Analog Reference Gain. This parameter determines the reference level that the AGC attempts to adjust the volume to. If the digital/analog volume is not matched, adjust this parameter. Also take a look attimjude said:I was poking around in the hidden menu and found a setting that says ANA ref gain.Can anyone tell me what this is for?
They apply to both radios, so make a note of the original settings before you make any changes. You can then go back to the original settings if you want.jkahn said:I have both, but I am reluctant to try anything with the 396 (as it is my "main" radio) unless I know it worrks or won't screw up something else.
Maybe Paul can answer this when he has time. I would rather he get the new updates out there first, though.
Sorry, but I could't find the "AGC Tweak" procedure in either the 396 or the 996 easier to read manuals. The only place I can find it is in the Wiki link I posted previously.ka3jjz said:era, are you using software (and if so, which one) or doing this by hand (if this, are you using the 'Easier to Read' manual that's linked in the wiki)? This will help direct the answers to your questions ....73 Mike
I am not aware of any other instructions for this procedure, but here is a clarification to the procedure that might help.eraweeb said:I have been trying to reset all those settings by following those instructions but it's just not working. I'm sure it's because it is almost impossible to follow those directions.
There are too many variables... "try this and if that doesn't work, try this", "sometimes it will do this and other times it might do that", etc. etc.
Is there anywhere else where this procedure is explained a little more simply for us idiots who have only been working with scanners for 40 years or so? Thanks!
These AGC settings can only be accessed directly from the scanner as far as I know.eraweeb said:I'm using the ARC996 software and as far as I know there is no way to access those settings with it.
Is there another type of software that will?
