Signal strength instead of SNR?

Has anybody looked into the possibility of modifying the SW to have Signal level instead of Signal to Noise level (sort of S-meter reading) on receive? I’ve been trying to use the WSPR mode for detecting differences in attenuation depending on direction over the path, i.e. the amount of reciprocity. There are interesting findings but as long as you don’t know the back ground noise at the other station over time, it’s hard to draw certain conclusions.
