Sounds to me like there are two possibilities, One, your input network
is miswired or not switching into the 80m position properly, and
second is the same for your tank circuit. There isn't much else to go
wrong.  I'm betting it's the tank circuit.

It is stable, draws full current, but puts out less than the input, I've played around  adding and removing padders to the plate and load caps. There is no tuned input.Any ideas???Thanks, Dick NY1E
