    in case anyone else needed this info,these 3 adjustments are right beside the power transformer.
    rv302 audio..i opened it up.no difference for me tho

    rv301 ssb mic gain

    rv303 ssb power.

    so as of now i cant change my deadkey,the cb shop said he needed to do that:sad: i did mark some spots and try a few diff pots on the right side in the circut board area but couldnt find it so left everything as it was.



    on am i have a 5 watt dead key and no swing..f-500 dk is 110watts and no swing.
    ssb is 10 watt dk and 12 swing.. 130watt dk with amp ,swings to 210watts
    does anything here sound like im driving the amp to hard..
    the am 5 watt am dead key worries me but it has no swing on am.
    no clue if this is too much for ssb tho i rarely use ssb "yet"
    amp is the f-500,,goodnight fellas;)

    Did you say "ssb is 10 watt dk and 12 swing"??? If you actually have 10 watts dead key on SSB, your carrier balance is way out of adjustment. In all cases you should have next to 0 watts dead key on SSB. Maybe you would be better off letting a tech make all those adjustments.
