The problem is, without proper equipment, you have little chance of aligning a radio. To completely align a radio, you need a wattmeter, signal generator, sinad meter, oscilloscope, frequency counter and a 50ohm non inductive dummy load at bare minimum.

You can do a basic power output alignment with just a good peak-reading wattmeter and dummyload, but thats gonna be about the limit as to what you can do.
