are you sure you're talking about the same guy?

the cbdoctor who you quoted is named Billy Dean Ward, and he has been around for a long, long time.

i also dont think he operates out of Ct.

always good to make sure you know who you are referring to before you make such strong statements.

All I know is that when my radio had the swing kit it was garbage wouldn't be heard over 5 miles with my TS killer bee behind it now that I had the kit removed I have had numerous 10 mile conversations. So that is what I know

This sounds like the amp was being driven to saturation (over driven), and not really the swing kit sounding "bad"?

Don't get me wrong, I've heard a friend's S9 with 1 watt swinging to "60"; and while they seemed loud up close, they fall off all of a sudden with any distance.

What makes the MOST sense... Forget a scope which in no way can show real performace. I started a thread similar, and 1/4 of avaliable power should be deadkey, and the rest swing. I have tried this method in real life situations and its true.. If the deadkey is say 1 watt and your swinging to 60, sounds good up close, but fades with distance.. Think that lowering deadkey is mainly for amps that require it.. Either way you need decent carrier to get out, and swing to be heard loud and far..


From my other thread... this makes the MOST sense

But check what the deadkey coming out of the amp is with no modulation, and let us know what that is.
