    22-52. Measurements. To obtain correct monitor mode data it is necessary to first set the frequency, bandwidth, and image prior to making the reading. Thus, it is a good practice to always place the request for a reading as the last command in the string. For example the command string: CMRNRHGF95.5RET selects the monitor mode, narrowband, high image, and 95,5 MHz center frequency.
