The way I settled the Cw sidetone variable volume adjustment is the

Turn the rear screwdriver adjustment all the way down, or barely audible -
owners manual page 19 item 3

Turn on the front panel monitor button, and adjust the monitor volume for
the desired leval of CW sidetone that you want.

Just keep in mind that if you use the FH-1 Remote Control Keypad, or the
software substitue that is available, that the Monitor function (MONI key)
must be off for the Message Monitor Playback without Transmitting feature to
work - Owners Manual page 62. I find it just as easy in this situation to
turn off the VOX or the BK-IN feature instead.

The next time I am in the radio I plan on seeing how difficult it would be
to route this pot remotly to be under the hatch cover.

:I too had a FT-980 before the 'MP.
:Since the early 70's all of my HF rigs have been Yaesu;
:the FT- 101, 101E, 107M, 980, all were reliable and trouble-free.
:ALL of them!
:I agree about the rear panel placement of that side tone button.
:Perhaps there simply is no more available space left on the MP's front
:This is a great rig alright. It's built-in switching-type power supply
:does not seem to have any noticeable "birdies" & other extraneous RF junk
:on any
:of the HF Ham bands.
:It's receiving section is very resistant to overload.
:The MP's noise blanker really works!
:Mine has all of the filters installed.
:A very nice and flexible rig indeed.
:For me, this rig meets all of my expectations for a modern HF
:73.  --John, K8JS
