AM Carrier Level on Kenwood TS-2000 W2NJU 1 week, 5 days ago
I assume "50" means 50 Watts. If that is the case, 50 Watts is too high. One would need a transmitter capable of 200 Watts PEP for proper modulation. PEP power is four times the carrier power, so a carrier setting of "25" would be the proper level for AM operation.

Glad you're interested in new modes!

The ID-51A was reviewed in the December 2013 issue of QST.

D-Star is used on both 2 meters and 70 cm. Analog FM is still plentiful on both bands, but there are other digital formats used on 70 cm.

Icom's web site has plenty of introductory information regarding D-Star. With Icom's material and our QST Product Review, you should be able to make a decision about it.

When will I get QST????? KG5EAA on 3/6/15
I asked our circulation/membership department about your QST delivery. You renewed your membership (late) on May 7th. June QST gets mailed May 5th, so your first issue to be mailed to you will be July QST. The membership department should have explained that to you. If not, I will apologize to you on behalf of the ARRL.

You're off topic, OM.

Where in the world did you get the idea that the ARRL funds antenna farms or DXpeditions? We can't afford that. We do loan out equipment for disaster scenes, like for what's going on in Texas. We also have a fund that helps out schools. Thanks to our members, who DONATE their time effort and money, we have the funds for such things.
