What is the transverter port output in a 6400M?  When I change the dbm from 1-15,  I get no change in power output from my Ukrainian transverter.

I believe the max output was 0dbm in V2. This changed with V3 and presumably V2.5 to 10dbm.

If you’re not getting additional power out with more power in, the transverter is probably being driven to saturation. You shouldn’t run any more input that recommended by the manufacturer. 

dBm is the power level - decibels relative to a milliwatt. 10 dBm is 10 milliwatts, 13 dBm is 20, etc.

Manual says +10dbm max.  Which version of SSDR are you using?
