How should I properly adjust my ALC for SSB voice operation? I have an Icom 718 if it matters, with a digital "bar" ALC meter. I've read that I should adjust my microphone gain to the point where I'm three or four "bars" shy of totally peaking the ALC meter, and then turning on compression to just fully peak the ALC, but not go over. Is this correct? Should I do something different? I've played with compression and no compression, and I seem to get slightly better reports with compression turned on. Obviously I'm able to gain a tad PEP with compression as well, which doesn't matter much. Just trying to make sure my audio is clean and clear, and able to be understood well.
