What mode are you trying to adjust as i may be wrong but 101 could be AM/FM and 102 is SSB ?

Right analogue meter is done,many thanks.Bar graph one hasn't changed is there a way of setting that?I get around a signal floor of between 3 and 5 but bar graph meter is still showing 9?I know there not so accurate.Anyway thanks again,Mark

With the Omegaforce there's no way of adjusting the LCD signal meter. It's completely independent of the analog meter and has no VR to set its level. The Deltaforce has the same issue.

Placing a resistor/VR inline to the LCD meter would be the way forward (a VR would allow you to fine tune to your requirements). However this method would also affect the modulation meter when in TX.
