Check out YouTube, there was a couple pretty good videos on the tuning of those...along with some of the other features on that rig. I sure like the looks of them.

Best of luck.

Modulation. And key. But I took care of it. It is the same as a 29. And my Delta tune is my variable power.

That radio must sound like it's on sideband.

If turned down all whe way with no help yes. But there is a method to my madness. It drives my 2 pill that drives my 8 pill that drives my 6 z's.
