Thanks. I made a macro for conversion so now all places can be adjusted more easily if a better formula is discovered.

New firmware (1.3.x; at least in 1.3.4) adds a new RID (FD51) for getting dBm-normalized version of FD43. This might be more accurate method, but it is not available in older versions and it seemed to produce incorrect values in one test case so I did not yet add it as a replaced (if available) for FD43.
