Gday to the group,
I trust this finds you in unabashed immersion in outdoor, out-of-lockdown activities.
Per G4WJS' article, I have 1 comment and 1 query, running WIN10 and an FT-991A
- the WSJT "slider" control displays in VOLUME MIXER without transmitting, i.e., 1, short burst of RF and the slider remains without xmitting. Could this be what Bill meant suggesting powering-down a rig?
- my rig has a control labeled DT-GAIN, which I believe is intended to control ALC. When I decrease rig power output - e.g., 100 to 40W - ALC increases. DT-GAIN requires adjustment from ≅5 to 3 to maintain ALC level at "little or no" response, on response, on the ALC progress bar [left to right]. I have never observed this behavior, is it normal? Why?
All adjustments — whether DT-GAIN, RF POWER out of the rig, power slider in WSJT — are incredibly "sharp", i.e., require adjusting up & down to "land" at the desired result.
Take it easy.
