Re: QCX Mini Troubleshooting Meter
Ernie Bailey - N2DGQ
Many thanks to Mike and Ron for their replies. I was under a preconceived notion that the RF output was a permanent reading, as I thought I saw that on my many hours of You Tube viewing. That obviously lead to my confusion.
I went back and read the manual and hooked up the RF Meter to monitor output and was pleasantly surprise at the 4 watt output. After fidgeting with L1-L4 I was able to get out 5.05 Watts. Now a happy camper.
Thank you again. QRP here I come!!

Ernie, in addition to what Mike said, the RF meter is only for temporary use. You can't leave it connected all the time or it might cause issues like excessive harmonics, etc. It's OK to leave the DVM connected to the power supply input as a way to monitor battery voltage. In that case you also need to set up the voltage max and steps and turn on the battery monitor. That's all in the manual. Good luck . Ron
