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.
