    Wow ...

    Let's start with the dead key - carrier power without modulation.

    Swing is the carrier power with modulation.

    Yup. That's usually how you see techs checking out a radio on the tube videos. When you are checking out your radios rf power, I like to turn the Mic gain down so no external noise interfere with the power reading.
