Delay in FDX

I have watched Kens great video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3s7UbKiqxAA

Never really thought about doing anything like this but makes sense and I learned a ton.

My issue is my brain does not function if there is a delay. It trips me up.

Is anyone else doing this?  Have a dummy load on the transverter output. I might not be doing something correctly as there is no output showing up on the RF power meter.  Everything works as it does for Ken except for the delay and no power output on meter.

It will delay and its hard to talk like that, you can do quick records with the receive slice and then play it back to yourself.

Yea that works pretty well doing the record.  I still dont show output on my 6500 RF meter regardless of wattage.  Am I doing something wrong?

If your transmitting on the transverter slice you wont see any output because its such low output. I see output on mine when I transmit but I don't use the transverter output  I set my receive slice to the rx antenna selection that doesn't have anything connected to it and run my transmit slice at 1 watt.

Was Ken receiving on the xverter?  I need to rewatch it I guess.  His meters were working.

the transverter output is only milliwatts so you wont see anything on the flex meter. You don't see any power output on kens rf meter either because he is transmitting on his transverter port.

Wow, that's a great video.  I never know what I don't know until someone teaches me.
