My sent ping values are almost always lower than my received values. This would seem to indicated I'm not receiving other stations as well as they are receiving me. Often this is by several dB difference.
I posted this on the Facebook but got replies from reduce my power to one way propagation. My reasoning is there could something wrong in my setup. My rx audio levels are at 50% or so on the VU meter. It's rare that I hear the other station better than they hear me.
My power is 50 watts into a doublet or a delta loop depending on upper or lower HF bands.
