Re: low power out on HF
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I have personally experienced this, after discovering 30 watts output on hf on a used rig
I bought. I was not happy, but amazed to discover warmth around the fuse holders and
adjacent power cable. I measured around 1.4 or more volts drop at radio thanks to this
oxidation that I discovered on the fuse blades. I cleaned them back to shiny state, and
problem was resolved for only a while...so I soldered the fuses inside the fuse cases and no
problems since- full power out, no more excessive voltage drop (the IC 7000 requires
near full voltage for expected power out).
I was amazed. The two lines of oxidation were very visible on the fuse blades before
buffing them out.
