Optimum Gain Setting for System Red
#1
I operate a system red detector to provide coverage for northern Arizona and Southwestern USA.  I can always operate at a gain of 8 X 4 X 40, and when there is no local electrical interference I can increase the gain to 8 X 10 X 40.  I use the ferrite rod antennas supplied with the system red.

The higher gain setting allows detection of very distant lightning, but higher gain does not appear to be as sensitive to nearby lightning.

Does a high gain setting result in nearby lightning overloading the system red?  Have others experienced this problem?  What gain settings seem to work best for you?

Thank you,
