Typical DRM SNR for decode?
After the MW season all but ended, I have enabled DRM on my Kiwis (KongSDR and ArcticSDR). I have tested functionality a bit, and I am impressed by the user interface. What I would like to hear is if there are variations in which level the SNR brings a stable decode. I have read that it may vary from station to station, but does it vary from Kiwi to Kiwi? Few have been decoded here, but judging from Kuwait-15110, I can get stable decode above around 12 dB SNR. Occasionally below, as low as 9.5, but I suspect that the AGC can play a role here so that sudden peaks aren't captured by the SNR reading.
