You could set menu 144 tGEn MA PWR to 50 or 100W.  I would still check
the power output using a scope or very good peak reading wattmeter like
the LP-100A using a single "dit" every 2 to 3 second while looking for

The FL-7000 was originally designed for use with the FT-1000D (among
other rigs of that era) which had a 200W output.  Be sure you have
enabled the attenuator (on the power divider unit) as instructed for
the higher power exciter.  IMO, setting the FT-2000D for 100W ma and
enabling the attenuator *should* keep things in check - using 100W
with the attenuator will e a bit safer than 50W without the attenuator
since the attenuator will knock down any spikes that get through the
FT-2000D power control circuit.

Hi There:  Is anyone out there using a FT-2000D to drive a FL-7000
amp. I've told that it is not a good idea due to spikes even if the
drive is only 40 to 50 watts. Any 100 watt rig will work fine  fine.
Any comments or suggestions?? Thanks.  Gary Thostenson  W9VS
