If it is a new solid state transmitter from Quincy, I would call the manufacturer and verify all the calibration settings. A fellow engineer had some real interesting problems with a FAX-5 that wasn’t calibrated correctly. Putting out much more power than the front panel said. And damaged an RF module in the process.

Calculate the TPO,  Voltage X Current X Efficiency and see if it lines up with one of the two meters you have.

Can you switch it into a dummy load and check the readings that way?

Hey Guys:


Let’s suppose you just installed a brand new transmitter.  You sent your Bird meter to the factory for calibration and it’s back and it’s in the rack.


You power up your new transmitter and set it to your licensed TPO.


You look at your freshly calibrated Bird meter and it says you’re putting out a couple thousand watts less than your licensed TPO.
