Optimizing TX

Before receiving my Flex, I remember viewing one of the several YouTube videos on setting your transmit audio. One of them included the statement that doing this one tweak would improve your audio 3 db. I've created my SmartSDR transmit Rag and DX profiles - adjusting EQ, etc., but I don't recall what that certain tweak was. Sound familiar?

    I think that the 3 dB is from the Flex running CESSB (Controlled Envelope Single SideBand). This effectively (not literally...) doubles your power. I use the processor on either NOR or DX most of the time. When conditions are tough or I am trying to break a pileup, I move it to DX+. That may be the tweak that you are thinking of.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
