8. Transmit. (TXd) [ you should see around 500 watts output on the amplfier readout]

When you Transmit, watch the audio stream at the top of your “client”.
Set your mic level to only occasionally show color there.  If you see orange or red color, you are over driving the audio.  If you do not see any color ever, your mic may be set too low.  Use the MIC slider at the top of your client to adjust the level.
HINT: once you have moved the mic level with your mouse, you can fine-adjust it with the mouse roller while resting on the mic control slider.

When you are finished Turn OFF the AMP by clicking the PWR button. No need to click STBY first.
