Persistent “low power” to my Tuner Genius no matter what exciter I use
The set up and configuration of the tuner Genius 1X3 that I received a few weeks ago couldn’t be easier. I’ve been a flex radio owner for several years owning a 6700 and a 6600 M. Unfortunately although installed on my PC and attaching my three separate antenna inputs to the three in antenna connections on the back of my tuner genius and whether I connect my 6700 or my 6600 into the transmit input on the tuner Genius , I persistently when tuning receive “low power“ because despite my Smart SDR program showing RF generated. 20 W or 100 W full tuning output the tuner genius does not seem to show any power being received although I can here radio signals through each of my three antennas when I am in receive mode.
I even added my power genius amplifier in line and that made no difference. I can put out several hundred watts through my Power Genius into my tuner genius but still “low power“ red warning cuts in.
I even just hooked up my 6600 M directly to the TX input of my Tuner Genius it’s just one of my single antenna outputs and again when I hit tune I get the “low power” warning. What’s interesting is that my smart SDR shows the appropriate tuning power that I am amplifying and radiating, And it also shows appropriate 2:1SWR on this particular antenna I chose but despite having the tuner Genius in line it shows no wattage going through the tuner genius whatsoever and hence for whatever reason this is likely the cause of the “low power“ warning?
my network is connecting perfectly to all of my radios and to the tuner genius as well as the genius amplifier. Everything seems to work except my continuous low power warning because my tuner genius for whatever reason isn’t “seeing“ any radio frequency power although it senses the frequency in real time without any difficulty.
not sure if this is something really simple on my end that I’m not doing correctly or if I have a bum unit? Any and all help appreciate it!
