Dear team could you pls help me with this question
In bts config  we have following entries:
trx 0
   nominal power 23
   ! to use full TRX power, set max_power_red 0
   max_power_red 20
osmotrx tx-attenuation (oml|<0-50>)
So why do we need these «max_power_red 20» and «osmotrx tx-attenuation» which both as i understand weaken the signal?
If we want to have a weak signal why we just don’t use only «nominal power» with whatever weak or strong signal value we want?
