The Pegasus will power down to below 1 watt and is continuously adjustable
through a sliding button bar on the screen. The display resolution changes
in incements of 1 watt.

I detect absolutely zero hiss even when using my Sony MDR-7506 pro-grade
Some added notes:
-QSK is excellent and on-par with my Omni Six
- The CW keyed waveform is the best I've seen: perfect symmetry and zero ALC
overshoot, regardless of output power
- Software upgrades couldn't be easier...takes me less than 5 minutes from
the point of Internet download to QSO
- Excellent I.F. DSP filtering...I have not yet detected any filter
"blow-by," even on strong signals
My wish list items are now down to only two:
-Develop a CW keyboard interface with text editing capabilities
-Allow for the sceen A.F. volume control to vary the audio level of the
"LINE OUT" jack. Once the schematics are available, I may make the mod
