The Sights and Sounds of Olivia
The Screen captures below are from the FLDigi digital program which has an excellent waterfall display. In some of the other digital programs that run Olivia mode the visual difference in various Olivia configurations may be harder to see. The sound clips below are about 1 minute long and recorded directly off the air via my Yaesu FT-100D and clone computer.
This is a screen capture of a 500/16 Olivia signal (500hz wide - 16 tones) - Notice that it is fairly well defined and looks like little puffs of cotton layered against each other with gaps and holes where the waterfall color is showing through.
This is a screen capture of a 500/8 Olivia signal (500hz wide - 8 tones) - Notice the signal is less defined and has LESS gaps and LESS color from the waterfall showing through.
This is a screen capture of a 500/4 Olivia signal (500hz wide - 4 tones) - Notice that this signal is NOT defined like the little puffs of cotton in 500/16 are - instead it is filled in fairly solid with a lot less color from the waterfall showing through.
