PGXL Normal Output Power for 6 Meters?

I am trying 6 meters for the VHF Contest this afternoon. WIth 50 watts drive I am only getting about 1045 Watts Output. Is this normal or what? On the other HF bands I can get 1.5 KW. I know that sometimes with 6 meters there are limitations. What is your experience with this?

  • Ok, this is something I don't understand with my 6400M and PGXL. When I am using the PGXL and have it set to operate the TX Band Setting is 50 RF Power and Tune Power is 20. And this is for 6 meters. Yet, If I put the PGXL App on standby the RF Power is 100 and the Tune Power is 20. There is something here that I definitely don't understand. Can one set the TX Band setting one way when you use an amplifier and another way when you operate Barefoot? I do notice that there are Transmit Profiles which my choices are Default, IOS_Default, SO2R_TX1 and SO2R_TX2. I guess I never realized this when operating the other bands.

    I still think it is FRStack. Or DDUtil.
