just added the LM324 S meter driver circuit to my 455KHz hycas IF amplifier. I thought it was working just fine until I turned the IF gain down and noticed the S meter climbing to full scale when the IF gain is reduced/off. my question for anyone who is using this S meter system: isn't the meter supposed to go to zero with no IF gain? Please don't tell me what's wrong. I'd just like to be sure if the meter is working incorrectly or not from anyone that knows. thanks all.
