Yaesu Ft-100 ALC (and probably others)

I use an Ft-100 for wspr. I could tell a long story but the bottom line is that if you are having a problem with your ft-100 ( or even other radios) where the alc just won't go down as you reduce the wspr PWR slider, check your menu items.

I initially tried to reduce the alc by changing the MIC GAIN , but if you think about it, if you are using the back panel inputs for your wspr audio connections, the MIC GAIN is not the right adjustment.

I finally realized that the AFSK GAIN adjustment was the right answer, and after reducing it from 100 (I swear I don't know how it got there) to about 40, things started to work the way they were supposed to.

So, I guess the moral of the story is, don't fall into thinking inside the box...
