Re: Help - FT817 & Commander

Hi John,

Pretty easy to disable AGC on my version of the 817. It's menu item #8 [NB, 
AGC]. Accessible by pressing F momentarily and rotating the SEL knob. 
Selection is AGCauto, AGCfast, AGCslow, AGCoff. One problem is that if AGC 
is set to off, the S meter no longer functions....

I'm not sure if you can manipulate the AGC in Commander. I'd have to hook my 
817 up to test it....
