This relates to second contest rig ...

Got a second radio for the shack ... TS820 , RX works just fine, but
on TX output rises from 0 to 30 - 40 watts max and then drops off fast
as drive increases more ... output supposed to be 100w ... does this for
all settings of loading control ... Sincerely request some hints as to
what's wrong ... bad finals?   One bad final?   12BY7A replaced with
new and same behavior ... Spare 6146 swapped out both finals and
still same behavior ... probably something very simple ... Jon kb4zdu
