Low power on 10 mtrs

WA6FXT Mike Member ✭✭
Operating on 10 mtrs, for the first time, I noticed that maximum power is only about 70 watts. I verified the output on my Daiwa meter and it matches the Flex6700 indication. I have not checked all bands; however, 40 and 20 mtrs will output 100 watts. Any ideas?

    Mike, No problems with my unit - full power on all bands. Forgive the obvious question but have you tried checking the SWR or using the ATU to see whether that helps? Stu K6TU

    No problem, Stu. SWR 1.2:1 and the ATU does not help.

    Check the total current draw on 10 meter in tune at full power verses the other bands. If the current drawnn at 100 %. Output is less on 10 meters as compared to the other bands, say 15 then it might be a calibration issue, but if the total current is about the same, maybe be in the PA filtering .. Let us know on the Help Desk .
