I replaced the three BS 170's in the amp and usingGeorge,
and 1.6 watts on the drains during receive..The wattmeter only gives sensible results on the output when going into a dummy load. All other checks should be with the voltmeter.
I replaced Q5 and no difference.Check Q6 voltages. Your "1.6 watts" seems to show that is faulty.
Also check IC3 voltages.
>Not sure which voltages to check.
As in the manual.
Do you know what happened to cause this? Any observations?

I realize there should be no watts on the drain in receive as I checked my QCX 20.
