I managed to get a 2MLDPA working with my Flex 6700 this evening.  Works great but the max 2M power output is only 50 watts and I'd like to get its claimed 75 watts output.  Checking the manual it says the Inverter Port defaults to 0 dBm, but has the capability of up to +8 dBm.  I've attempted to change the Inverter output to +8 dBm via the Settings->Radio Setup -> XVTR window but it makes no difference in the output of the 2MLDPA. (Measuring equipment: Bird 43, 100w VHF slug & Bird Dummy Load).  Is there something I'm missing?

Problem solved.  A RG-8x faulty coax jumper was the culprit.  My 2MLDPA is putting out 80 watts now.  Thanks for all the comments.
