Re: Trial to control CW power (and reduce harmonics as a result) by unbalancing the 2nd mixer #ubitx

Thank you Ted.

That may well be my final option.

I was hoping for a software controlled power level as I already do in with the SSB signal by using the gentle (relative to an audio passband) slope of the 45Mhz filter to flatten the power output over the 80m-10m range.

But I can live with say 2 watts for tuning at 80M and 1 watt at 10M. Still very usable and low enough to safeguard the finals during tuning.

73, John
