The ALC action in the Orions is not meant to be user adjustable.  Not that 
there isn't an adjustment, and if there is, I suspect it would be found in 
the A5 section, schematic 81911_2 which is available on the RF Squared web 
site.  R179 is a power-set control, and R19 is unlabeled, but may effect the 
ALC operation.
