Reduced transmit power output on 6700

I just updated to v1.2.17 on my 6700 after being off the air for a few weeks.  I'm noticing maximum transmitter power output of 75 watts on my Alpha meter, lower than that on the SSDR meter.  RF Power is set to maximum.  Minor differences when I switch to different antenna systems, both with modest SWR (1.4:1 or less).

Anyone else experiencing this?  Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Interesting because they fixed the low power problem with v1.2.17 on the 6300 and apparently moved it to the 6700. The 6300 max power was 85 watts. Now it's about 95 to 100 watts depending on the band. This sounds like power redistribution!

Thanks Steve. Will double check the voltage to see if that was inadvertly change.
