Database power levels dBm or Watts

Hi Bruce,.

Just wondered if it was possible to include the power level in dBm as well as watts in the new database.

This makes manipulation of the data much easier when it is exported for analyis, as it is useful to be able to normalise the received C/N ratios to compensate for differing TX powers so that it's possible to compare like with like.

It's possible to do this within a spreadsheet but it's a bit of a mess, I also find it's easier to do the maths in my head when casually looking at database logs if it's all in dBs.
