Setting the XVTR power?

I am needing to set the XVTR port power to allow the transverter a TX of 5w. What is the way to enter this in the box in the XVTR setup?

    Hi Bill, In SmartSDR, go to Settings, Radio Setup and the lower right hand box sets max power out of the Flex and into the XVTR. 0.0 dBm (shown below) is 1 milliwatt out of the Flex. When RF out is set to 100, you get 1 mW out in this example. You need to look at the documentation on your transverter to see what level in you need for5 W out.

    Thanks, I am shooting for around 3w out from transverter. I am trying to set it for that.

    I set mine for 15 dBm front of the rig is going to show 0-100w. You can extrapolate it from there. Assuming it is linear.

    HI Bill, to set the transverter for a particular output, you need to know what the transverter expects for input. The max power that the Flex produces at the transverter port is +15 dBm or 31.62 mW. The minimum is -10 dBm or .1 mW. Here is a link to a calculator:

    Transverter output is not part of the Flex setup. Flex output to the transverter is what you can set. This is why you need to look at the transverter documentation to see what it expects in the way of input. Make sense?
