    power tuning pots for high and low power AM and SSB and modulation. thanks in advance.

    only seeing about 10 watts carrier and max 20 swing.
    (on high setting)




    i thought this radio would do a little more than this ?

    depending on the condition of the finals and driver, I would expect between 35 and 40 out of that radio. If its an older radio with all original parts, then 25-30 is a fair expectation. If it is only doing 20 peak, then set the key for about 5 watts. (4:1 ratio)
