Wx Panel - Gain Knob

Let us look at the detailed explanation of the Wx panel

Gain Switch

A GAIN potentiometer, which enables the manual adjustment of the transceiver gain/sensitivity.

When the potentiometer is fully rotated clockwise, the MAX position provides maximum calibrated transceiver gain level (maximum receiver sensitivity).

Counterclockwise rotation of the GAIN potentiometer decreases the gain towards the MIN position.

When the GAIN potentiometer is in the CAL position (no gain level), no indication appears in the lower right corner of the NDs.

When the GAIN potentiometer is in a position other than CAL, the MAN GAIN indication is displayed in white & MAN indication in green.

In windshear mode, the gain control is automatic for WXR/PWS scanning.
