Default RE: Thom...right again!

thats only part of the story.

The number of blips a unit can detect in a vertical column (quantization levels) does change from unit to unit to match the screens resolution in most cases. You are assuming the receiver only has enough quantization levels to paint 50 distinct pixels, each representing a different return blip. And that if it can only detect 50 blips it does no good to paint them on a screen of 100 pixels.

He did not answer the critical question. What is the quantization levels between the different receivers, or how many blips can they detect in a vertical column? What he answered was strictly that the power output and receiver sensitivity was the same from unit to unit. Not how many blips it could detect in a vertical column.

Does that make more sense?
