To paraphrase an old joke ...

I do not know anything except that when I ran my Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark 5 at 40 
watts to drive my tube amplifier in Class A, I burned up that radio so well 
that two other very smart men could not fix it, including Yaesu London.

That orange button is not something to be touched.    73, Charly

P.S., the defenders will arrive on schedule, but I say, why risk it?   The 
Elecraft Lovers Club started this hurrange about transmitter purity.  In fact I 
read the very first message of what has spread like psoriasis where a ham 
demanded in one post that anyone not running a K3 should have their contest 
scores reduced.  No kidding.
