If, I use the radio screen alone (6600M) I cannot adjust the power out once its set in the profile.
However, if I use my external monitor with SSDR, the power originally set is there but it can be adjusted to any value.
I cannot afford that power level to change when using the external linear amp.
Why cant you just reach to the right of the touch screen and turn the outter ring on the same knob as you use the inner ring for to adjust the mic gain? It always works for me, that way the new power level wont be saved in the profile and the profile level will return when reloading the profile.
That's how I do it when I want to tune the amp I lower the power with the knob and when done tuning I just turn it back to where I want.
When you recall this profile, you can go to the RF Power slider and move the RF Level, and it will snap back to the original profile setting.
However, if you do this using SSDR on a remote monitor, it will not snap back to the required setting, but stay to wherever you just set it to.
That's my concern that the RF level will be to high, or maybe even to low?
They should both react the same, regardless.
I tested the profile on the 6600M multiple times and the profile loaded the correct settings. After the settings were restored by the global profile, I was able to change the RF power on the 660M to any setting and there was no "snap back" to 30W.
I disconnected the user and rand SmartSDR for Windows. I loaded the global profile and it behaved exactly the same as when I was using the 6600M Front Panel.
The only control that will produce the "snap back" behavior is if the MAX POWER value is set in the radio to something less than 100W. This is set in SSDR-Win in the Settings->Radio Setup->TX tab or Menu->TX on the 6600M Front Panel.
Once that value is set for the radio, it is recognized and used with both clients (SSDR-W or the 6600M Front Panel)
So I set the Max Power to 10W and if I load the global profile I made earlier for 20m with the wattage set for 30W, the profile loads, but the wattage on the radio is set for 10W.
Max wattage is not saved is not saved in the TX profile, only setting the initial power level.
Unfortunately, I was incorrect in my description.
In the "Radio Setup" in order for SNAP BACK to occur, the Max Power must be set to the required level.
Unfortunately, and this is where I have issue, is that once the Max Power is set for a profile, it stays there regardless of what profile is loaded.
I would like to have profiles with different value Max Power settings.
I just retried this power setting, and if I set the MAX Power under Radio Setup to the desired level for each band in question, it stays with the chosen "Select Tx Profile" and Snap Back occurs.
