1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Is it as simply as adding to gain values together, ie 20db + 40db = 60db.

    Or is it non linear, in which case how do you do it?.

    This is the simplicity for using logarithms. To multiply you just add the logs together.

    However this doesn't necessarily mean in practice that it is all usable and you don't mix Voltage and power gains.
