It should be below 10 us. Just as with the 3801, the estimate is a bit fuzzy. You should be able to see issues in the data on the Z3809/Z3810. A prediction of < 1 can pop up on occasion, on either unit. More typical estimates are in the “couple of us” range. If you yank the antenna, it still does a respectable ~5 us / 24 hrs or so either way. > > Both have been running for weeks. > > Is anybody seeing similar? no > > > Also, the Satellite Status area has a header of SS on the Z3801A and C/N on > the KS. Does anybody know the units and/or what that is actually measuring? There are tables that translate the Motorola (and some of the other brands) status numbers into rough dbc/ Hz. I would not count on the numbers on a 20+ year old design lining up directly with the latest and greatest modern module. Apparently the SNR calculations are a bit weird.
