Re: [linrad] WSE RX2500 Tx control?

I never had a system that would allow for fast break in. I have been concerned with sequencing so as not to smoke anything. I also don't think I could mentally concentrate on sending CW and tweaking the ant for au! Well done, Leif.
I think I will switch out the 144-70 converter with a BNC relay during SSB Tx.

I do not control it at all:-)

The "rf clipper" on the audio signal and also the AGC if you wish
make sure that the signal level is not too loud for my ears.
I just do not listen to what I do not want to hear using
head-phones. It is relevant to say that I use fast full break-in.
(=RADAR) so I actually listen during key-up for the echoes from
aurora and the moon. During the Leonids fire-ball storm some years
ago I could use this to make sure I was always pointing to a
reflection point continously for many hours. (Got some surprised
comments about that...)
