George, transmitting over 46 seconds on 10 watts with a SWR of 1.2 raises my Flex6k5 temp. to 48°C so your PA temp should be allright. I do not use DDUtil, but the FRStack meter window.
Your not satisfactory reports can of course result from our space weather (K4-K5 at the moment) http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/communities/space-weather-enthusiasts
