What value “Match Quality” is recommended in CAPWAP®?

There is no specific Match Quality (MQ) recommendation.  What we do recommend is to keep trying to improve MQ (lower values) until they can no longer be improved.  For good data, you should always get below 5, usually below 4, often below 3, sometimes below 2, and rarely below 1.  With experience, these numbers will be easier to achieve, so that maybe you get below 2 often (for example), except for concrete piles that have cracks or piles with very low blow counts (large set per blow), which are more difficult to analyze.
