I'm holding off on a couple of potential bug reports because I now realize I may not correctly understand the various signal strength reports that appear in the VarAC UI and in the logs.
In recent tests using FM, we had inconsistent broadcast reception, and QSOs were disconnected seemingly at random. In the UI, my partner was seeing the SNR(dB) Last and Avg of my signal around +16. I may have mis set expectations from FT8, where I expect solid communications down to -10 or so. If I look at N7SHM's VARA FM log I'm seeing:
2023-03-23 17:04:11 Monitor: WA1TYB -> N7SHM S/N: 19.2 dB
2023-03-23 17:04:45 Monitor: Weak Incoming signal (Unknown) S/N: 15.9 dB
2023-03-23 17:06:31 Monitor: WA1TYB -> N7SHM S/N: 17.5 dB
2023-03-23 17:07:21 Monitor: Weak Incoming signal (Unknown) S/N: 10.8 dB
I thought that 10dB would be quite a strong signal, so I'm unsure what is being reported here
