One of the most frequently asked questions about the RBN has to do with the meaning of the SNR that is included in each spot. I've been answering these questions, and, as I learned yesterday, propagating some incorrect information. I have just posted the correct version on the RBN blog at <http://reversebeacon.blogspot.com/2014/03/understanding-signal-to-noise-ratio-snr.html>. It was derived verbatim from an e-mail exchange I had yesterday with Alex, VE3NEA, and is reproduced there with his permission.
