Got a couple of nice replies right off the bat...should of added more
I am running barefoot at 100 watts..no amp in the place
I am not using the internal balun but was using a 4:1 current balun I homebrewed as a remote balun...with 3 feet of rg-213 coax. I have determined that the 4:1 current balun was not accepting power on 80 meters and have replaced it with a homebrew 1:1 balun that I have verified as being good via an antenna analyzer.
I will replace the internal balun with something a lot more stouter...

Are you using the ferrite balun? If so, check its temperature too. The stock balun in the this tuner is very unforgiving. When I built this tuner back in 1985, I smoked the balun almost immediately when I started using an amplifier with it.
