Re: ALC Setup for ICOM 718


You need to drop the mic gain til you show Zero ALC.  Your mic gain is buried in a menu setting but if you're using Fldigi you can adjust the drive from the screen.  Down at the lower right of the screen there is a number between two sets of arrows, defaults at -3.0.  That is a TX attenuator.  Making that number more negative has the same affect as dropping the mic gain.  Using that method is handy because when you go from SSB to PSK Fldigi will adjust your drive.  Since HRD came from a copy of Fldigi it might have a similar feature like that.  When you hit Zero ALC your power out will drop abt 5 to 10%.
