When is ssb mode the power meter swings to max 80W, but no matter how loud I talk on AM it rarely goets past 40W sometimes 50W but rarely. Swr, is all good. Powered directly to battery. Normal? Also in real life terms, what are your thoughts on the 955hpc v ranger RCI 2970n2? With real life terms I'm referring to the lower wattage of the Stryker compared to the RCI. Cheers.
