I've had my unit for almost a year. Mostly for SWL listening.

Recently I've been in the mode to xmit. I have a dummy load
and a SWR wattmeter. I never get close to 5W output on CW
or SSB on 20M. If I over modulate I can get it up there but
only maybe 1.8 - 2w. I have watched the videos for setting
up the xmit profile to keep it close to 0db, but I never get close
to 5w.


My other question is; as I transmit into to the dummy load
and monitor on a separate receiver, there is a a delay in my
audio. I reduced the buffer as low as it can go and there is a
still a bit of delay. Not as bad as the MON delay, but enough to be
unusable to use a 2nd receiver to monitor.

I don't have to have a monitor, but to have a bit of 'side tone or
talk battery' would certainly help when I'm talking.

Is my PC too slow ?

You have to have a peak reading meter and even then many meters are not very accurate.. Use the TUNe button to measure your constant carrier output. With Drive at 100% and when you hit the "0" dbm peaks in the Mic and ALC metering, you are getting full 5 watts PEP output.. If you are using a averaging output meter, then you can only see maybe 40% of the actual PEP output..

Hope this helps..
