Output Power- Can it be turned down


Recommended Posts

Maybe just not seeing it. I know people get giddy about big output power, but there are times where less power is situationally better. I don’t see on the Tetra/Nano (nor did I see on Mark IV or V) a UI option for adjusting output power. Perhaps at CLI?

I need to revisit this, and hoping for some education. My Linux-Fu isn’t strong, but at the same time I can usually get around. But trying to do command-line power adjusts is making me feel like a child. I see the command structure, but every variation on it I attempt results in “command failed, no such directory” which feels weird. Can I bother someone for explicit,verified steps to make this work? Also- I live in a world of dBm and milliwatts, so the mBm thing is funky and I find little of substance using Google on mBm. Anyone have a handle on that and the patience to explain how it translates to the more mainstream RF values?

This is Tetra 2.0.2, BTW.

Thank you.

Thanks, will play around more but have never seen a WLAN device that wouldn’t adjust power on the fly. I know I mentioned it earlier, but power out adjust for each interface would be a huge win in the UI. In the enterprise WLAN world, it’s a pretty huge deal.
