HR 2510 and KL-503 to many watts


Since RM lists the max drive at 1-6 watts AM and 2-12 watts PEP SSB drive for the amp then yes you can probably shorten the life of that puppy driving it with 20 watts.
 
Why is it set to dead key 1.5W when the service manual states 10W?

At least on the President there's a RF power knob on the front so you can easily turn it down.

The Hr 2510 has no rf control on the front of the radio.
If your radio has been turned down to a 1.5 watt dead key some one has already twiddled the AM Power control.
The only way to solve the problem is to turn down the AMC control inside the radio to a point were it will not overdrive the little amp.

AudioShockwave has provided the correct answer. Use the AM power control to set the carrier and the AMC to set the maximum swing. If the AMC has been disabled, reconnect it because you need it to function here. Additionally, if you ever use it on SSB you should adjust the ALC inside the HR2510 for 12 watts PEP maximum. That way it will work good on SSB too.
 
Since you are a bit put off by the CB/AM traffic in your area, that 2510 is a radio prized by many Hams for its performance and clarity. You might consider getting your Technicians license so you could use it on the 10m Ham band. That Technicians license would be the first level/beginner level. Wouldn't be the first time that a person got sick of AM radio and got their license. Just a thought.

My apologies. I assumed it was the same as the President Lincoln I have. It appears they changed the RF power knob on the Lincoln for a RF gain knob on the HR2510 which is a damn sight more useful.
 
I am going to see about the license. I only use it on the cb 40 channels but it goes from 26.000.0 to 29.666.0 with out skipping a beat. We have locally 35 local and a dozen or so others that can easily make 50 to 80 mile transmissions or so cb'ers here and everyone already has a ten meter rig I am now finding out. We have coffee breaks every couple of months so maybe we could make it a group effort.

RF stands for receiving frequency it's not a variable for power that I know of

There is a control on the President Lincoln that controls RF power from the face of the radio.
The Uniden Hr 2510 has a internal control to adjust the carrier of the radio.

And this thread here is from 2014 , the OP has not been here since 2015.....

    Maybe. I wasn’t impressed with just clamping the shield wire to the boom with a hose clamp. I built a l bracket with so239 female hubs. I posted a picture on the recent gallery’s.

    Well I cut the matching stubs down 1 inch at a time from about 20” down to 6”. Still no real changes.
  • @ 555 Central Missouri:
    Hello everyone, I have a old courier centurion pll 40 channel SSB, it has the extra channels and it has another switch that just moves the frequency down one channel on the dial, what is the purpose for this?
