Hmmm, my IC-7610 states more than 3500 Hz and does receive that entire bandwidth. I have never restricted the width. There are times that I receive similar TX and RX reports but they are rare. Maybe my location is extra quiet? I doubt it…

excessively optimistic signal reports
are often due to restricted receiver bandwidth. The FT8 decoder
relies on a reasonably flat receiver bandwidth across the
displayed waterfall, and at least 2500 Hz wide. Narrower input
data bandwidth will cause underestimation of the noise level.

I don’t feel so bad…. I have been giving +10 to +20
but receiving -15 to -20 dB.
I noticed a
similar thing on the evening
of 10/02 on 10m FT8. There was a good opening from
W1 land to LU and PY land,
and I was getting -15 to +05 and I was giving out
+20 and most around +10.
Same here, v2.5.0 downloaded and installed
perfectly. One thing I do
notice is that there seem to be a much wider range
of received signal
strengths, with quite a few lower than they might
have been with previous
releases. Maybe WSJT-X, maybe recent Windows updates
altering the CODEC
settings. No problems operating, just rather
disconcerting when I sent -01 to
an N4 earlier and got +30 back!
