Pretty easy to disable AGC on my version of the 817. It's menu item #8 [NB,
AGC]. Accessible by pressing F momentarily and rotating the SEL knob.
Selection is AGCauto, AGCfast, AGCslow, AGCoff. One problem is that if AGC
is set to off, the S meter no longer functions....
I'm not sure if you can manipulate the AGC in Commander. I'd have to hook my
817 up to test it....
