The meter in the Omni VI is calibrated at 100 watts output and is not too
accurate below 25 watts output power.  For true QRP use, we recommend using a
quality external wattmeter for exact power readings.  The Omni VI and Omni VI
Plus both are capable of less than one watt output power as a standard 
feature.  The Omni-V was +/- 20 watts minimum output power but can be easily
modified for true QRP power levels.
