Is there a list of the what the President Lincoln 2+ v3 adjustment locations do?

Looking to boost the SSB watts, adjust the AM watts both high and low and peak the modulation. I did a couple of Google searches and figured it would come right up but nothing. Thanks!
 

Thanks, I saw, I just needed a little clarification on the what the labels meant, figured it out though.

Don't. You put components under stress they weren't designed for all to gain at best a single S point if you actually manage to double the output power. Much better to get a linear amp.

I am, using a DX-500v and wanted to drive it with 30w pep am and 40w pep SSB, works like a charm. Didn't max it out or remove the limiter, sounds good and doesn't even get warm.

That’s what I use my Lincoln with...but I’m happy with 12-14 watts SSB input.

Just looking at a wattmeter I don’t think doubling my drive would make a lick of difference on the receiving end.

I know about the whole quadrupling the power for gaining an S-unit reasoning, and for AM, totally agree, not worth it but it will help you cut through on SSB when things get rough, and the nice part is you can always turn it down. I also use as a grab and go for the car when the mood strikes, and with it doing 30-40w, I need nothing else, plug into the lighter and go.

The president ronald has dual mosfets and does 50 wats right out of the box and says so o n the box so why does the lincoln so restricted and also has dual mosfets ?

    Is it possible to be on a lake and have a homing directional beam being emitted from the shore so a person could navigate to that beam's source? For example at night to a jetty.
