Re: sonatest sitescan130
We have a Sitescan 230 with manual. Ours is also set at 20 Ref dB. I could not locate how to reset in the manual or on the instrument itself. I do not, however, believe there is 20 dB added gain to the instrument. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Re: sonatest sitescan130
Not familiar with the Sitescan unit, but have you looked to see any of the following:
1. any damping is on
2. most digitals have selectivity of probe frequency, incorrect selection will affect gain required
3. Suppresion
Hope this helps.
