Does anyone have any experience of the Microset SR100 ?

The output on my FT-1802 is 5,10,25 and 50W.

The spec. says for 10W input I get 80W output, no problem.

For 15W input I get 100W (max.) output - I don't have an output of 15W.

The spec. also says the maximum input should not exceed 25W, so in order to get max. output of 100W I would need to use the 25W output of the 1802.

Is this advisable, given that the spec. says this should be the maximum input of the SR100 ?

For safety I would stick to 10 watts input as the difference between 80 and 100 watts out is hardly noticeable.  If 25 watts is the max input allowed, that doesn't mean it is a good idea to run that much continuously.

To be safe I would reduce the power of your Ft-1802 to maximum 15 watts even on the medium and high settings.

You can do this in the service menu and then even if the rig is accidentally set to 50 watts it won't blow the input to the amp.

Remember to note down the factory setting so you can restore it in future..

That sounds a real good idea Rex. I've read the web page you referred to and it is a bit "woolly" to me and I would need more of a step by step instruction in order to do this. I would make the 25 and 50W power both 15W if that was possible.

Perhaps someone could give me those step by step instructions or tell me where I could get them from.
