About to take the plunge with CW but nervous (No replies)

Sorry for the very basic question. I am about to give myself a test run on CW on 20M. I'm using a Kenwood TS-850S and the manual tells me that for CW operation I:

 

  1. Select CW mode
  2. Depress the VOX button
  3. Adjust CAR to get me into the ALC zon

What I want to know is:

Is CAR control the equivalent of the PWR control when using SSB? That is, is CAR really the PWR control for CW. So, if PWR is fully anti-clockwise, am I transmitting.

 

Thank you
