No Output

I was operational on August 2 when I worked several stations using FT8.  Have not used the radio till today.  Powered it up today and pressed the tune button in SSDR and no output.  I put the radio in cw mode and keyed the radio.  It is going into transmit and the pan display shows activity from the keying but no power out.  When I run WSJT-X in FT8 mode and call a station I see the DAX TX Stream transmitting and the bar moving to the right and I have the gain set for 35.  I see activity on the level meter but no output on the power meter nor the LP-100A.  I am receiving plenty of FT8 signals.  I have tested the radio on three or four bands using a dummy load and also a vertical and hex beam. Any thoughts and the pc has not gone through any upgrade that I am aware of over the past few days.

    Make sure you have the right antenna selected for the slice you're using.

    Must have been pilot error.  I just noticed XVTR was selected instead of ANT1.  Not sure how that happened.  Perhaps when I switched to 2m to see if I could hear anything but I do not have a XVTR.

    Don't feel bad Don. My suggestion was the result of my own bit of cockpit trouble.

    Hi Don, Yesterday I reassembled my station, and was having issues with getting no signal out. When I reset my autotuner, I accidentally put it on antenna 2. DOH!  It happens, and you're back on the air, so it's all good.
