Do not get full output power when PGXL has MEFFA Activated


My name is Mark Griffin, KB3Z. I have a brand new PGXL. I have had it over 1 week. But it seems when I have MEFFA activated, the Max Power Output with 100 watts input is 850 watts. And yet, if I have MEFFA not activated, the Max Power Output with 44 watts input is about 1430 watts. I was under the understanding that with MEFFA checked that the amplifier would run more efficiently and would require more input drive power to get full output power. But in my case, that doesn't seem to be the case. Why is this happening? Would someone please care to explain to me why this is happening? The firmware version I am using is 3.6.23. I have also put in a Helpdesk Ticket a few minutes ago.

Mark Griffin, KB3Z

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
