Thanks Paul, that helps some. The emonTx is only about a metre from the emonBase, in the same room, so is -33 dB as strong as it gets, or is it an indication of something wrong with the signal? I’m kind of surprised the emonBase doesn’t have an external antenna.
So for the pulse counter, I need to click on the spanner, then choose ‘Wh accumulator’. I now see there’s a description of the process underneath - hadn’t noticed that before. It says ‘See forum thread here for an example’ but there doesn’t seem to be a link. Which forum thread?
Again, is there some documentation somewhere that I’ve missed? I’ve no idea what I may break if I just play around, because I still don’t have any real understanding.
