Flexradio 6500
HW version 1.5.1.70
When transmitting via DAX or Microphone, the output power never gets above 20 watts.  Radio had been working normally until last night.  I was operating JT65 and all fine running at about 30 watts.  This afternoon after powering back up, output power is very low.  I checked the DAX settings and it seems fine with the transmit level below 0db.  With the RF power setting at maximum I can only output around 20 watts.  I then tried the microphone on 10 meters with the radio set at USB and the microphone set to 50 percent.  I was only able to get around 10-15 watts output on both the SmartSDR RF power meter and also a Daiwa CN0801 that I have inline.  The SWR is below 1.5:1 on my hexbeam on all bands that I tried this on.  I have performed a factory reset of the radio and reinstalled SmartSDR v1.5.1.  Still having the same issue.  Any suggestions?

This ended up being a failed final.
