Well I can't say I wasn't warned. I decided to have the 450D checked at
cesars house on a dummy load, because I thought I was doing something wrong
with the output power being so low and this is what we  Saw - 6 / 15 /
12meters at 12 watts being set at 100 watts --- 10 meters peaked at 80 to
90watts --- Now 20 meters 40 watts peak and went lower to 20watts on
40meters / 80 meters 15watts and 160 meters less than 10. I spoke with the
original owner and he's gonna give me a refund. Now I feel between a rock
and a hard place, as I'm now hooked lol, on getting HF back. Have you heard
anything bad about the FT991A? Would love to get a IC-7300 but for the
price and only HF / 6 meter -Eh... This will mean I have to sell my FT736R,
to combine it with the refund. By the way I ordered another the other 2m7
yesterday to stack, what would you recommend for phasing cables, the prices
I see are crazy, for such short runs. I understand precision is key, but
yikes, heh. Guess you get what you pay for.
