This afternoon I spent some time going through the calibration steps. The setup was pretty simple. I am getting about 3.5 to 4 watts out depending on which band I am testing. My rig is setup for 17 meter instead of 15 meter. (I have never been very active on 15m for some reason... but I love 17m...go figure).
I have two weird quirks that I need to check into a bit further....
- The audio on the headphone is pretty low.
I tried using computer headphones, a Heil Proset, and amplified speakers. --Something to investigate further.
- The voltage indicator on the LCD shows weird values.
A 6vdc bench supply will read 10.8vdc
A 12vdc bench supply will read 21vdc
I am pretty excited about this radio. Once I get this audio level issue resolved I am going to put together a small box that will live in my truck. The box will have the ATS4a, a small paddle, a battery, coax, and an EFHWA for a couple of bands. --This radio might be the reason for me to relearn CW.
