What does the K3 report as its input VDC during TX on these bands?
I had some issues and when I checked that voltage it was low, so I removed some lossy DC supply line connectors and adjusted my power supply voltage a bit. All my issues were corrected.
Worth a check …

I have an old K3 which has low power on 30, 40 and 60 meters. See chart below.
Other bands are OK. The TX Gain calibration did not fix it.
Measurements were done with old Heath HM-102 analog meter. Not accurate, but relative measurements.
Any suggestions to get 40 meters level up to 100 watts?
