There is no easy way to check for splatter on an oscilloscope. You can
attempt to see if the rig is linear but it is only an estimation at
I wrap a piece of wire around my dummy load and connect it to my scope.
If I need more signal I wrap more wire. Put the rig on CW. Vary the
drive (e.e. RV1) from zero till you see the signal display stop
increasing. Again, this is pretty subjective so you might be well
advised to err on the conservative side. Put a piece of masking tape to
mark the top and bottom of the display.
Then put the rig is SSB and adjust your signal output (using your voice
saying ahhhhh! or audio tone from your smart phone using an app) with
the mic so it never exceeds the marks on the oscilloscope.
This is the level at which you generate little splatter. If you
actually have a peak reading meter for your SSB signal and CW signal
you will probably find that you are putting out far less than 10 watts.
