OK, I'm away on a weekend trip and can't seem to get power out. I checked my SWR before I left and it was great. No SWR meter with me. When I transmit, the power scale hardly registers. I will check the SWR tomorrow as best as I can using the radio's SWR feature. Can anyone offer any ideas? The radio is set for 100W using menu item 75 while on 20M.
Thanks in advance! Michael N3QIG

Wow a dope! While the radio is new to be, there's no excuse for this operator error...in mounting the face piece I must have selected the Transverter option! Turned the option off and hit CA from OH with no problem!
Sorry for the false alarm! Now please excuse me as I try to hide my red face!
