Re: Measuring noise
In a message dated 97-12-13 22:18:57 EST, you write:
<< These figures are rather meaningless anyway unless you know the distance at
which the measurement is taken. The decibel level of the voice of someone
talking directly to you at a distance of one meter may well be 60 dB; on
the other hand, a quiet conversation between two people several meters away
could be 30 dB. >>
Isn't the measurement supposed to be taken @ 16 feet from the receiver, the
point which conversation is broken?
