When using this radio on SSB, How do you regulate the power output? I hate to blast my close qso's with 100W when 5 would do.
Thanks and:

This has been previously asked, and answered.

The TS820S does *not* have provision to lower output power on SSB.

You can build an outboard circuit which applies negative voltage to the ALC INPUT pin of the accessory connector to adjust output power lower, but again, you must build that circuit and install it.  As the rig came from the Kenwood factory, the TS820S has no provision to lower output power on SSB.

Or, you could just turn down the mike gain.

If he wants to us cw, the mic gain will not change the output level.  

As steve wrote, best way to make the alc circuit,
real easy and it works !

go to kenwood section in the 520 there is qrp mod
not internal to the radio but to use with the aux socket on back of the radio.

I run QRP with my 820 by turning down the Carrier (under the Mic gain) while watching the output on my meter.  Works for the CW side....
