I have an amp so I don't intend to usually run more than 60W or so on RTTY, but the RTTY NAQP is a 100W event, so I'm interested in whether the 6600 can run 100W with a very high duty cycle. Typically not a good idea, but my IC-7300 does it with no problem, so I thought I'd ask. I don't even know where to manually feel for excess heat if things might be heading towards dangerous territory .  Thoughts from the Community? TIA, 73, Ray N6HE

  The flex radios will generally protect themselves from over temp.  The fan(s) will run faster and it should shut down before it fails..  Both FRStack and DDUtil will display the PA temperature in real time.
