Re: Proper adjustment of audio levels for transmit


 

There's a few ways to feel comfortable about your signal. I use a PSK Meter, & a Bird peak reading wattmeter. I adjust the output of my digital radio, a Kenwood TS-480HX, to 30 watts as measured on the Bird wattmeter. Then I adjust the output control on my RigExpert Standard to a full sine wave display on the PSK Meter display. When transmitting text the PSK Meter tells me visually and with text when my signal is "OK", "UNDERDRIVING" or "OVERDRIVING". I make adjustments to the signal with the RigExpert Standard.
Seems like a lot of adjustments, but once set, it rarely changes.
And, I'm of the philosophy that you want no ALC showing on the radio's meter.

Okay, good to hear, thats the way I have been operating. Did decrease the RF out to 50 watts and adjusted the interface to read about 19 watts on the Wattmeter, made a couple contacts that way today.
But WOW! there were some strong signals on 20 today!

On the Jupiter you don't want any flickering of the ALC light.
