developed across R14 and R15 is applied to keyer
signal level below the squelch threshold, the output of
comparator U2 through the resistive divider formed by
A4U5B is a negative dc voltage of approximately -10 V
resistors R16 and R17 and the approximate 4890-ohm
dc. This negative voltage is applied through resistors
equivalent resistance of the reference voltage resistor
A4R78 and A9R3 to the non-inverting input of A9U1
network. The resistive divider attenuates the voltage by
causing the output of A9U1 to be negative (about -0.6 V
about -26 dB to set the keying threshold at about 1.57
dc). The negative voltage turns A9Q1 off to de-energize
volts.  This represents a current flow of about 14
milliamperes through resistors R14 and R15.
