Volume Panel with VOL-POWER-MIC-RF.GAIN and VOX GAIN. With mouse scroll function.
VOL – adjust your volume.
POWER- adjust your transmit power. Below are the approximate settings for each of the white
1st dash - 0 watts; 2nd dash – 2 watts; 3rd dash – 6 watts; 4th dash – 15 watts; 5th dash – 35 watts; 6th
dash – 50 watts; 7th dash – 100 watts
(A power meter plugin can be obtained from the shop that will give you an accurate indication of
your TX power)
MIC- This adjusts the level of your microphone. It is worth mentioning here that better transmission
can be achieved by using a lower mic setting than a higher mic setting. So adjust your MIC setting so
that the needle on the S-Meter moves well into the green "ALC" area but does not go above the
green area. Too high of a mic setting will lead to your audio being distorted and difficult to
RF (Radio Frequency) Gain –Turning the RF Gain down will reduce the amount of pre-amplification in
your receiver (i.e. make your receiver less sensitive to signals). This can be useful when a station you
are receiving is so strong that they are saturating your receiver and are hard to understand. Turning
down your RF Gain can also be useful in reducing strong static. However, reducing the RF Gain can
also limit your ability to receive weaker stations.
VOX Gain/VOX Delay – Double clicking on this dial will switch between the VOX Gain and the VOX
Delay settings. Adjust the VOX gain so that it triggers the PTT with your voice only. Set the VOX
delay so that it keeps the PTT held long enough for the pace of speech.
