Mic/USB level while sending. Low/med/high?


As a novice on Whisper mode I have been a little intrigued on hearing much better than being heard.
There may be several explanations ... I have checked other collegues and sometimes the situation is quite the opposite.

I am using a long wire antenna that may be best for listening only. I have standing wave near 1:1 but that does not say anything how efficient the antenna is ....

Output from soundcard: Is it important to have a certain low level or not? Can it be checked in any way to get a nice and clean signal?

Type of antenna recommended?

My transciever is a ICOM IC-7200 with USB/soundcard in the rig.
