Not sure what S-meter it is but how do you know what the receiver s-meter
characteristics are at the Europe QTH? My FT990 is rather "accurate" on
20-15M. My IC706 ain't accurate anywhere. Now, By accurate I mean that it
has been set for 50uV for s-9 and seems to go in 6db steps/s-unit on those
bands. Won't say for other bands but it is relatively close.
