I think I already know the answer, but here goes.
Is there a way to save the power output setting into the memory channels on the VHF/UHF side of the radio.
I don't need 100 watts to hit repeaters only 10 miles away.  But more power does come in handy for the ones  way further off.  I have Kenwood's Memory Control Software, and several third party ones, but none seem to offer saving the power output setting.  Pain to have and check it each time.

While there is a provision in the command set to set/read power level, the radio does not store this setting for an individual memory channel.

If you turn on the sliders in HRD, the power setting is at the lower right.  I think that's about as easy as it gets.

I figured as much, big OOOPPPPSSS on Kenwood's part that they did not allow for that.
Hate it when I blast a local repeater with 100 watts when 5 or less would work just fine.

One thing you may not realize is that the radio does maintain different power setting for the HF bands, 2 meter band and 70cm band. You are correct in the fact that it does not save to memory but I would ask why you would set it to 100 watts on 2 meters in the 1st place unless you are working 2 meter ssb.  Grin
