Hi All,
I wonder if any one has noticed a wild overshoot of the mic signal in the "TX Window" while transmitting.
On my Flex-5000, I see full scale excursions of the indicator particularly at the start and at the end of a transmission. The Manual says that the mic gain should be adjusted to stay below the 0 (zero) line. This occurs whether I am using VOX or MOX.
This is of concern because I am driving a Tokyo HY-POWER amplifier. The amplifier is very sensitive to any drive over 100 Watts. My output power is adjusted to 82 Watts output.
If anyone has noticed this behavior, please reply.

I don't see this behavior, so let me ask- have you gone through your audio chain to make sure each stage is not overdriving?  There ios a good article in the Flex wiki that gives the order.  Generally, you go in order that you see the opritons in the VU display- start with a mic gain around 35, talk at your preferred volume and distance, and then set each audio stage (like EQ, compression, etc) until tthe VU continues to read between -5 and -1 dB .  If you're overdriving one stage and underdriving another to make up, you can get some wierd artifacts and generally lousy audio.
