Does anyone know how to lower the volume of the cw side-tone on a IC706Mk2G
?

If I turn down the volume control I need to turn it back up again to hear
the incoming signal each over. This gets tedious and wakes the neighbours
when I start sending without reducing audio gain .Also may bring MI5 round
at 2.00 am with current security jitters.

Airport security at LEEDS very thorough, when my equipment passed the
xray
machine all the lights and buzzers went off because of one dangerous
looking
item. I had to unpack one bag and the suspect item was my MORSE key. They
had
not encountered one of these devices before. One the way back at FARO
airport the security xray light up just the same flashing lights etc but
the man
just waved me on, he obviously knows all about amateur radio and morse
keys
!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to work you on voice on 80m for the first time Mal.

FB on the security.  I find that the X-ray machines hate the solid metal
base
of some morse keys. Apparently the density of block of Semtex has a similar
effect on the image displayed on the security monitors.
