How to key full output power for adjustments?
Hi guys... sorry if this is a 'newbie' question, but I've checked the SmartSDR manual and a quick search of the forum and I can't find a definitive simple answer.
I have an older ICOM linear amp (IC-2KL) which needs full power output from the Flex (6500) in order to adjust the ALC level into the amp. (Yea, I know, newer amps don't need the ALC, but as I say, it's an old one I've inherited)
How do I 'key' the Flex to produce 80 to 100W output so I can adjust the amp's ALC control? I thought of AM or FM, but that only puts out about 25W -- not enough to drive the amp. DIGU/L + MOX button seems to need some sort of modulation. Same with CW mode.
I don't have a straight key, so the best I could maybe do is slow down the keyer to 10wpm and produce dashes, but that's less than ideal.
Am I missing something?
