My 6700 puts out more than 70 or 80 watts max into a 50 ohm dummy load on any band according to the power bar indicator (SWR is 1:1). I read that some were seeing the full 100 watts. Is there a problem here with my particular radio, or is this a situation that exists on all 6700's?

To get the rated power output, you need to have 13.8 Volts at the rear connector on the back of the radio. If you use our supplied power cable, there will be less than a 0.1 Volt drop in the power cable.
