INPUT POWER: 1-6W AM/FM - 1-12W SSB/CW,
The variable power mod is the ticket for the linear running properly. If that amp will run at 1 watt; then set the radio output for that. Don't be hung up on the output numbers. No one will notice 40 watts less; they will notice a crappy sounding transmit - though.
As far as the swing mod goes; that will depend on how much modulation%/mic gain you use. Again, a crappy loud radio sound isn't always clear - and therefore - not better. Best get a radio check from a local operator that can give you a valid report. Clean sound is always better understood either locally or even distantly . . .
BASE: Kenwood TS-2000, GAP Titan DX, Diamond X50A, Sirio SY27-4, and IMAX 2000.
MOBILE: Galaxy DX99V w/RF Limited CR-577 mic, Sirio Z-180. Yaesu FT-8800R & Diamond NR-770.
