WSJT-X puts out only 25 watts
Running 6400M from front panel, not using ssdr. Ver 3.3.32 and Windows 10.
Set up WSJT-X and all was running fine, using about 15 watts out to drive the amp to about 200 watts. Using the Flex configuration in WSJT-X and radio mode is set to DIGU and width is 3.0K
Then the radio power out went down to about 2-3 watts. Turn the power output control up to 100 watts, xmit with WSJT-X and only get about 25 watts output. Recall a 100 watt global profile for cw and get 100 watts output.
In WSJT-X the power slider is all the way up and when I pull the slider down the power out changes as it should. Dax is working and shows the mic hitting about -2 or -3db, I think that is what Flex recommends. I can turn up the dax xmit slider and the mic level goes into the red and can hear distorion but the power output never goes above 25 watts even tho the radio power output is set to 100 watts. Go back to cw and get 100 watts output.
I made no changes to the setup before this change happened. Made a contact and logged it. Then called another station and got no response so I checked all the meters and I could see the amp is not being keyed cuz the radio is only putting out 2-3 watts when the power control is set at 15 watts. Turned the power up to 100 watts and the radio puts out 25 watts. Change mode to cw and the radio puts out 100 watts.
Powered off and rebooted both the radio (removed power for 2 minutes before reboot) and rebooted the computer, no joy. Works the same way on 10 meters as on 20 meters. Recalled a 10 meter global profile for cw and puts out 100 watts. Manually changed the mode to DIGU and it puts out 25 watts so it's not the profile.
What's going on? Any ideas?
