I found that at 13.8 V, output on 10, 12 and 15 m
was lower and more variable.

it drew a bit more current on the 10 and 12 m bands,
so make sure the voltage to the radio isn't sagging


	Hmmm.... interesting observation, consistent
	with what others of other rigs, such as the
	TS-590s, have observed. If the supply voltage
	sags, so does RF power.  Some owners have
	adjusted supply power upward, as you have,
	and report it assures higher, more consistent
	output power.
