Proper Transverter settings for the 6400M

VE3DZPVE3DZP GaryMember ✭✭
Howdy folks! I just  received my 144/148 mhz transverter from the transverter store as well as a little RM LA 145 amp. In all the articles have found in the initial setup is keep the power to around 5 dbm in transverter setup panel on the Flex.
Ok that done the output was very low but I found turning the RF power on the front of the flex to say 20 gave 25 watts output from the amp.

Now my unsolved question is what or why does the RF power control the transverter output. I thought it was fixed in the setup menu, turning it up can it destroy the transverter?

    Gary,

    You should set up the drive power in the transverter setup form so that full power is delivered when the power slider is at 100%. That way you can never overdrive your transverter. Just connect a power meter between the transverter and a dummy load.
