When I operate 40 meters on my bazooka, the tuner genius gives me a max ouptput error at 1kw......and on the power display it indicates on the bargraph, in small red letters, MAX POWER at the 1KW mark....

It doesn't do this on any other antenna....

    It could be the reactance the antenna is presenting to the tuner. What is the SWR with tuner in bypass?

    I suggest opening a support ticket but you might have a delay in getting a response as quite a few of the Flex staff are at Xenia.

    I had similar problems with mine. I found that the length of the cable between the PGXL and TGXL made a big difference. Short cables were worse. I ended up with a cable about 10 feet long and the problem has gone away.
