A little Odd...

#1

Post by Bubbathegimp »

I have noticed that when I first start out on FT-8, that I need to turn the Power down a few notches on the slider, That the Power out bar is starting out in the Red Zone.
WSJT-X has a setting to "Remember" your power settings. I turn the power down till the red bar is no longer visible..

After a little while, the power drops down farther, and I need to turn the slider back up a few notches after the radio warms up..
The radio doesnt seem excessively hot though, but is warm from use...

Duno if it is being caused by the radio warming up, or if it might be the cheap Jetstream balun getting warm??!!!
