 That's right, my IC-751's get worse at low power. I find that a 
common trait in systems with solid state amplifiers.

In the case of the 751A, changed driver transistors and revising the 
bias system in the PA section cured the problems.

I also see contestors (and others) are bumping up the internal 
power limit controls, like CB'ers do. That is really bad news, and so 
is use of audio equalizers to add bass response.
