My SDR-based spectrum analyzer (SDRSharp) shows a noise floor about -60. Is that the number I should put into RegRssiThresh?

Hi Joe,

Certainly not! this would clamp the sensitivity of your receiver to -60dBm. RssiThreshold shall be set very close to your receiver sensitivity (which depends on front end, BW and BR/Fdev).
What you are measuring is either the noise floor of your SDR receiver (depends on BW also), or some in-band interference/noise where your test is run.

Best regards

How many peaks should I see on my spectrum analyzer? I’m using power up default settings, TX mode and sending 0x00. I’m trying to keep the programming as simple as possible until I understand how to move data from TX to RX. Besides my Fluke meter, I have a scope and an SDR-based spectrum analyzer (sdrSharp).

many peaks
