 Hello Steve
       You wrote
However, the same receiver which might have a preamplifier added and at the
time and ferquency of the received which has a no-signal reading of say 3.
If that receiver now receives a signal which moves the S-meter up to a
reading of 8 - what is the appropriate report for the signal?   S8 or
= S5?
While the S-meter reads the value of what is  passing at the time trough the
MF chain, if the noise is quite lower in respect to the signal (assuming 6
dB each S-point), the signal strength may be assumed correspondent to the
meter reading. In the case of a noise level close to the signal level, there
may be a little influence of the noise, not more than 3 dB, in reading the
real value of the signal strength, but in this case is the R part of the
report that may be lower than 5.
All that  is what I think about, other suggestions ?
