Re: What's a Reason for less Power Output ONLY get 4W on 80m?.., 3-4W on 40/20m, 1W on 15/12/10m #ubitx #ubitx-help

You mentioned "on Dummy Load only 10-11V", is that your power supply voltage when transmitting? The power output is very dependent on the voltage to the PA line, and if your power supply sags to 10-11 volts when transmitting then you will only get maybe 60% of normal power. Similarly, if you increase the voltage on the PA line youcan get more than "spec" power. It is a good idea to keep the main board voltage at 12v or less to avoid overheating the voltage regulators, but that is why there is a separate line to the final amplifier.
