    I snagged this pic of the board.

    Guessing the following:
    AMOD is AM modulation
    APWR (H) is AM power high
    FMPWR (H) is FM power high
    SSBPWR (H) is SSB power high
    SSBANL is SSB modulation

    I remember Bells in one tune up report did say radio only has a high limit pot.. he set it to 8w, so low is about 1-2w and showed swinging to about 15-17 which was good for amp usage.

    Hey there I'm curious about turning down the output the variable power on the front is apparently only for am fm, I want to turn it down for ssb so I can use a 203 but I don't want to cause any other issues while turning it down, anyone got a good guide to follow.

    Thanks!

    Well the 203 is rated at 2-20w for SSB, I personally wouldn't hit it that hard. May like 15w peak PEP on SSB. No more than 10w on AM pep.

    The 5555 should be able to turn down the SSB pot to max out at say 15w for PEP..

    So adjust SSBPWR like I noted up top to swing your wattmeter with modulation to say 10-12w with a whistle and power knob on front all the way down and in LSB or USB mode and then test with the 203 in SSB mode.

    Others will chime in.

    Remember do at your own risk..

    Just got one of these from 88 Radio
    http://www.88radio.com/Anytone-AT-5555
    Does anyone know how to do the 11m conversion?
    Maybe I should read the manual but I skimmed it and it said that it could be programmed but I didn't see an explanation. Thanks!
