low power out on HF


Mark Langenfeld
 

Very first thing: check the fuses in the DC supply cable for oxidation.  They are notorious for that and, when contaminated, cause a significant voltage drop that can manifest as a loss of TX power out.  This may or may not be your problem, but it is a simple check that could (if the culprit is found there) save you headaches and money.
