The manual only says "adust so that the ALC meter reflects according to your voice level". Where should my voice peaks register? Low, middle, high on the scale?

Adjust so that your voice peaks only show very little movement on the ALC meter or back off til none are showing.  Try using the equalizer in the radio when you are talking so some of the locals (say on ten meters) who know what your voice sounds like for the best rag chew audio.

 I have a 570 which is my only HF radio. I keep my ALC set to full scale which is at 75 on the mic gain and I use 15 db of processing. It I set it as they show in the manual, my audio is very low as people tell me. I also get good audio reports at these settings. I am using a Heil HC-5 mic cart mounted in the handheld. I also use a Shure 450 mic. I recommend turning it up a bit. You can never overmodulate on the 570 as the limiters will not let that happen. If I turn the mic gain up to 100 it sounds exactly the same as 75, no furthur increase at all.
