Hi all. I have an XGGCOMMS audio and CI-V interface cable (IC-Cable-8 at http://www.xggcomms.com/userimages/procart2.htm) connected to the accessory port on my IC-718. It does its interface job well, but I noticed a drop in output on SSB when using the handheld mic with the interface connected to the accessory port. I can easily get the ALC meter to register by speaking too loudly into the mic with the mic gain at 50 and the interface disconnected. There is no ALC action at all with the interface connected and all other conditions the same. When watching the power meter on the radio, I'm seeing less power out of the radio with the interface attached than when it's not attached. I'm thinking the interface is loading the mic line or in some other way affecting the mic's signal output. Any ideas on what is going on here would be greatly appreciated.
