Re: 100% power with BPSK31?
PSK and almost every other mode does not require 100 watts. If you run the Icom 7000 at 100 watts on digital modes you are going to cause a lot of excessive heat in the radio. Sooner or later the finals will go south.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As for 100 watts at RTTY, I would not do that either unless it was for a quick DX exchange. For rag chewing you are better off driving an amp to get a higher output.
I used to operate a lot of Olivia with my 7000. Always kept the output at 20 watts, plus I had a small 12 VDC fan sitting behind the rig to blow some extra air across it.
