.09 changed the default to -12 dB

It would seem reasonable to me if the default TX attenuation were not at -3 but at some much lower number, for instance -15.  At -3, with all my systems, the output is very high.  It would seem better and safer to start at a very low level, then let the operator carefully increase the attenuation level per modem as needed, rather than risk massive overdrive and possible interference on-air, and damage to equipment.  My easy solution was to manually edit the mode_state.prefs file and search/replace all the "-30" with "-120" since -12dB puts me where I need with most modems.
