The Tx update should be working OK again, so it should not be necessary anymore to edit the drmtx file, please let me know of any problems.

Hi Mikey,

The author of DRMCalc has, as far as I know, not responded (in this forum) to any questions in the recent past.

As a preferred alternative why don't you try out Terje's program that does much more (he is available on this site and currently posting under the pseudonym "Digger")?

I've been very pleased with the program - I urge you to try out:

Newstar measurements

I've always be puzzled about Newstar`s "MER" measurement.

Doesn't this mean Mean Error Rate?

If so, how can a RATE be expressed in deciBels, which is usually a RATIO expressed logarithmically? What is MER actually measuring?

Grateful if anyone can clarify for me.

All the best

Richard+?

O.T.

Hi Richard,

According to the Broadcast user's manual it means "Modulation Error Ratio (MER)":

"The MER indicates the ratio between the wanted vector and the error vector and is normally expressed in dB. Thus a high MER figure shows that the error vector is small compared with the wanted vector and in consequence there should be little difficulty in correctly decoding the data represented by the carrier phase and amplitude. For a compliant DRM transmitter, an MER of 30dB or greater should be expected."

>>Many thanks for your very clear reply, "Digger"! Now I understand what it means and how it's measured :-)
