6700 transmission problem. What is the best way to determine if I am getting proper power output from my antenna. I've tried a dummy load and that doesn't seem to help. The smart sdr power meter is showing no output. I've sent this radio back to flex and they returned it with no problems, but I'm not so sure.

What mode are you using?


Are you getting power when you press the TUNE button? Is the ATU enabled or disabled? Which antenna are you using for transmit?

There are dozens of settings and conditions that can keep your transmitter from transmitting - since you already sent it in, why don't you open a helpdesk ticket - give them your repair invoice number and I am sure one of the people from Flex will be happy to call you and walk you through a process to troubleshoot and find a solution.  It will be a lot quicker.

Cheers and good luck !
