I have a need to run the radio at less than 1W RF output while in the Tune Mode. Building and testing a receiving loop antenna for 160M, I found that working here on my property the signal level is to strong even through a dummy load. I have a friend 3 miles away, using his Flex at 1W was still to much signal for me. I did not ask him to put a dummy load on yet. Other suggested ideas are welcome.
