Radio is a 1 month old 6700. Latest 1.6 firmware loaded last week. I was running tests regarding low avg power on SSB - see other postings. In doing so, I noticed a large error in SWR reading on 6700 meter on 6M. With a 1:1 SWR confirmed by Bird 43 and LP-100A into Bird load, the meter on the 6700 reads 1.7:1 SWR.  Also, max output power is 67W on external WM but reads 84W on 6700 meter. On 10M and below, the 6700 SWR meter read much closer to correct. All bands fall short of the 100W output spec.  I had not paid any attention to this over the last few weeks because my amp only needs 50 - 60W drive.  Is there a cal procedure I can use to recal the SWR and power out ? Thanks.  Steve
