Yes, they are FM, use an offset and maybe a tone squelch. Remember that your 100W (or 200W in your case) radio is designed for 100/200 watts intermittently on SSB or CW. When you use FM, AM or some digital modes like PSK31 and JT65 the duty cycle is much higher, so if your radio does not do it automatically you should roll back the power. I run about 40W max AM or FM with my 100W xcvr. The total power envelope in a 40W FM signal is a lot higher than a 100W SSB and it's the envelope that produces the equivalent heating in your radio and draw from the power supply.
