IMPROVED SSB TALK POWER (CMP): Our new speech compression algorithm provides a significant improvement in average talk power (or “punch”).
(1) Set CMP = 0.
(2) Start with MIC gain = 0. While speaking close-mic’ed in your “on-air” voice, increase MIC gain until the ALC meter tickles the 5th bar.
(3) While monitoring your voice with the KX3’s voice MONintor, advance CMP to the desired level. The transmitted signal will still be clean even at the maximum compression setting.
