- Jun 30, 2010It is possible that some of the weak pings with poor decode as we refer to
them, are caused by the AF tx gain being set too low? As Bruce reminded me
several who came to wsjt from the psk background are setting their level too
lite or "no" ALC indication. I don't do much psk but i generally set the
gain where I only show a flicker of alc on the meter. Thus a reminder that
west modes are single, sequenntial tones and nothing like psk or some other
digital modes where intermod distortion is a problem.
You can turn up the af gain for an ALC indication with no problem. Two
experienced stations could experiment with this at optimum ms distance.
