Anyone know how to cheat the headset monitor to turn on during transmit.  
Wearing muff type headsets is difficult to hear yourself while 
trasmitting during contest.  I have the DVS-2 and can monitor it in head 
sets but not my "live"  voice. I connnected an amplifier to the audio out 
on the back and also from the din connector for the DVS-2.  This appears 
to locked out during transmit. I was reading a 990 product review in a back 
issue of CQ and the author mentioned the lack of a monitor switch but 
thought there may be a way to do that with the accessory phone patch????? 

I have been told by reliable sources that there is a SAFE way to increase 
the power output (150 watts) on the 990.  Anyone have info on that? 

First time on yaesu reflector hope it gets through. Just purchased my 
FT-990 and love so far. Except for he lack of a monitor.
