Re: low power out on HF

replaced maybe the driver transistor, is it common for this part to go bad ?
Any thing to watch out for to prevent it from happening in the future

This is not the driver in question, it is common to HF and V / UHF.
To prevent this failure, do not use more than 30W in FM or numerical mode (FT8, etc)
like all the 100W tranceivers.
