I noticed my Orion 1 (latest firmware) was sounding awful noisy - lots of
band noise in the form of static and low frequency growling. The S meter was
always reading high from the noise. Reducing the RF gain did not improve the
audible S/N ratio. The NR has been broken since ver 1.371 of the software so
that is no help at all.
I tried playing with the AUDIO>RX EQ setting to see if it would make a
difference. It sure did but in a way I did not expect. Setting it to -6db
the background noise go way down. What I didn't expect was that resetting
it back to zero the background noise was still way down. Now my radio sounds
like I think it should even with the EQ set to zero. The S meter is reading
as I think it should instead of S9 noise all the time.
Anyone else noticed this or have a comment?
