I'd get one of these cams IF the AGC can be switched off!!!



Maurice, The AGC can be switched off AND manual gain control takes over. The manual gain control has a dedicated control on the remote with .25dB increments , from the lowest gain setting of 0dB all the way to the maximum setting of 45dB . It works just like your radio volume control .


Thanks Matt - I presume this "AGC-off" feature is not a factory default option for the Ntech 300 but unique to your mod

That is correct. The unmodded cam sets gain at 0 (lowest value) when AGC is set to off. There is no manual adjustment, just off=0dB . I added some elecronics in order to manually adjust the gain to any value from min to max.
