relation between the gain of the pulser-receiver and the echo amplitude

I had made experiment showing the echo amplitude from a cylidrical
hole against the distance of the hole from the transducer
for various gain and the results showed that the echo amplitude
is inversely proportion to the gain but i haven't explanation
for this phenomena. Please if you have explanation
send it to me.

Thank you
Mirham

Dear Mirham,

if you work with very high gain and the signal amplitude of the echo is very large it is possible that the receiver amplifier goes into saturation. In This case the echo seembs to be smaller.
Try reducing gain and look what happens.

Best regards,

Martin.
