How to set the ALC to use for FT4/8 or other digital modes.

On any other brand the ALC must be around 0, but on the flex it's diffrent or not?

Now for FT4/8 it stands around -10db is this good or to high.

    This is the level I have always used.

    Set it to about -5db. You can do this using DAX.

    I’ve found DAX TX @ level of 48 should put TX level right at zero but peak indicator will show yellow and not red. If you see the peak indicator hitting red then it is too high.

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.
