High reflected power using transverter port

I have one of the Ukrainian 2m transverters interfaced to my F6500 using the xvrtr port.   If I have the smartsdr transverter max transmit set higher than -6 dbm I get the "high reflected power" shut-off.    The transverter board wants 0-20 dbm to produce a few watts of output.

How much reflected power can the transverter port triggers the transmit shut off?

-6dbm is just about the maximum output power setting I can use without having the flex 6500 shut off during transmit.   

Any insight would be appreciated.   The transverter seems to work fine otherwise.

This issue ended up being an error related to the SCU being exposed to excessive power greater than the damage threshold and not high reflected power when transmitting.
