I'm looking again at the specs from the Operating Manual.
1000 watts PEP SSB
2000 watts short pulse
600 watts FM
400 watts continuous carrier
I'm confused by the termonology. What power reading should I expect to measure when I hard key in CW mode?
If you have a still AC power line (preferably 240V), you should see over 600W carrier power on CW.
Try it and see what you get. And whatever you get, when the amp is fully loaded to max power on CW, what's the high voltage read (key down, full output)?
