Flex 1500 RF Output Is This Normal??
Running PowerSDR .189 on Win10 on an HP i7 ZBook with 16GB of RAM, it runs perfectly with low CPU and great performance. However I have noticed something a little odd that I am not sure is normal and would appreciate any guidance or advice. I have a FLEX-1500 connected to an LDGZ100 ATU and what I am seeing is this:
When I hit tune on PowerSDR and watch the FWD Power it seems to raise in steps, most of the time it goes to 8% then 100% but on a few occasions it goes 8%, 11% and then 100%. My meter shows that its **** on 5 watts at 100% but I find this a little odd and wondered if there is anything in the settings I have missed? All seems to work ok, and I am enjoying using my 1500 again with this fantastic bit of software!
