I've added a new feature to the firmware release 1.5.0 V1.5 1 - power offset V1.5 3.

 

Now you can add attenuators between the generator and the meter input and the values displayed are still correct.

V1.5 2 When an attenuator value is set in the configuration, the unit (lower right corner) changes from dBm to dBO ;-) O like offset.

The following steps are available in the setup:

0dB,-3dB,-6dB,-10dB,-20dB,-30dB,-40dB,-50dB,-60dB

I've tested it with a 40dB power attenuator from Funkamateur, a 10dB attenuator from miniCircuits and my K3/100 and got the following data:

Power (W) dBmcalc dBmmeas
1 30,00 30,37
5 37,00 36,92
10 40,00 39,76
25 44,00 44,47
50 47,00 47,21
100 50,00 49,54

Now the question is, what are the correct values? Nevertheless the measurement results are looking pretty valid.
