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
