No, I looked at it again this morning and it looks fine.

You can try to enable the warning (define at the top of the file)
It shouldn't throw any (check that DCS is disabled in your mobile config or  
else it will throw some when doing power measurement in a bad band for your

Ah yes, I guess I could test with OpenBTS as well.

Yes, but with _fft software alone it's not easy because RACH is very short  
and so what you see on the screen is not really the power.
A real analyzer can be set to trigger on power level to capture 'only' the  
RACH and analyze the power in that.

A time graph might work tough. (or possibly waterfall with a very short fft

You can look at the parameter chosen in the trf pll settings (A / B / Band)  
and post them here along with the ARFCN so I can check if they've been  
selected correctly.

I don't have much other ideas.
