Alpha 9500?  I am sooooo jealous!

Of course, you need to set the power output on the 6700.  I use the Auto Drive in DDUtil.  I set each band for 25 watts and then adjust up from there. Of course, you need to set the serial port and enable it under amps.

I use an Alpha 9500 and Acom 2000. For the 9500 it's as simple as selecting the com port in DDUtil that you have connected to the 9500. Use DDUtil Autodrive to set the power level for each band. That's it!

Steve (W6SDM) has it about right.  Start at 25 watts and then see.  It also is partly dependent on what settings you have for SSB or general gain (e.g. for DAX when doing RTTY).
