    Just quick one, I dont use sideband as much as Id like to but noticed a probably anamoly in the S meter reading when using either LSB or USB on this radio.

    I noticed when I unkey the mic in SSB modes , the Sig meter shows 2-3 bars of db all the time, it occurs everytime I unkey the mic. Even if I turn the power and mic gain down all the way same thing. Doesnt do it in AM mode.

    Here is a video showing the query. Note the white turd under the LCD glass also. Near the SWR meter.

    Is that the audio (hiss) slightly higher and then dropping as well?
    Maybe AGC response is slow?

    I think you're right. The agc on the 955 I had seemed slow or maybe the meter response was just slow.

    When a strong station keyed up the s meter would max out for a second or 2 and then settle down.
