I just wondered if I'm using the above correctly. I tend to turn the RF Gain on full, and auto squelch. This is mainly on FM. Occasionally I turn the squelch manually if there is persistent noise. Radio is CRT SS 9900.

Ideally what you should do is to find an empty channel and turn down the RF gain until the S meter reads S0. When you do that it'll attenuate unwanted noise more than wanted signals making weaker ones easier to hear.
