Procedure for lowering ssb output, ru mode jacko 2

Post by original45 » 14 Jun 2019, 19:16

One of my biggest bug bears ,no variable ssb on jackson 2 as with many I imagine.

Wish to lower ssb output to around 15 watts so able to run amp obviously in ru mode.
First issue, I don't have a pep meter ,just a standard cb swr power 10/100 watt pwr meter.

Can someone advise how best with this meter to get it close and its procedure.
Any specific block to adjust from , which pot for Ssb power.

Appreciate the guidance please.

Further please for those more experienced.

Today I tested watts out in am fm and ssb on channel 20 each band a- j

Their is a pretty wide spread on the results and I'm hoping someone can give me idea if it is correct to display such spread.

Am fm. Ssb
Bands

|

A. 3.5 w. 19/20w
B 8.5 w. 24/25w
C. 2.5 w. 18w
D 10 w. 25w
E. 10 w. 25w
F. 7 w. 21/22w
G. 15 w. 27w
H 1. W. 20w
I 17 w. 20w
J 3.5 w. 20 w.

The am fm results are with the variable rf power control full back.

Are these kind of power results what you may expect .presently I see no point reducing the ssb let alone am fm although ssb appears a little closer to each other than am fm.

Any advice appreciated .
Thank you .
