Signal levels bad?

Hi,

My signal levels are as follows:

Down:

Power Level (dBmV) 10.34, 10.74, 10.56, 10.41, 10.32, 10.22, 10.09, 9.97

RxMER (dB)              37.94, 37.36, 37.36, 37.36, 37.64, 37.94, 37.64, 37.36

Up:

Power Level (dBmV) 34.25 N/A N/A 34.50


This is pretty bad right?

I've got a 200/20 connection and notice it fluctuates a lot.

Thanks,
Steve

Re: Signal levels bad?

They are kinda high. I would get yourself some forward path attenuators off eBay and lower them down

Re: Signal levels bad?

Why would you use a forward path?

Re: Signal levels bad?

A forward path attenuator reduces the signal strength on the forward path to your digi box or modem by whatever the value states on the attenuator

Re: Signal levels bad?

A wideband attenuator would be better than a forward path as the upstream is low
