3.E. Signal Quality Indicator
Inclusion of a real-time signal quality indicator is recommended so that
the consumer can find the best location and antenna orientation for
their RCC product while forcing the product to attempt synchronization
(Section 4.C). Since the actual signal strength is not easy to detect due
to other RF noise at 60 kHz, the signal quality indicator can show the
“bit strength,” or current readability level of the signal; or it can indicate
the progress of the decoding process in the software.
