Thanks Paul,

I thought so, especially when the manual states " power input 5 watts" .  I
figured about 60%  output would be close into a nice tuned antenna (unlike
mine at over 2:1 swr right now).  I'm surprised at how many replies I've
gotten swearing that they get 5 watts output and mine is low.  Can't see how
that's possible with 5 watts input..... wish I could get that efficiency on
the rest of my projects <grin>.
