while not the same problem, my argonaut VI took a crap a few days after I received it from Ten Tec.

Here’s what mine did.

On 160 meters, the power out bar graph would show 1 or 2 bars into a 50 ohm load. However, the power into the dummy load was 12 watts.

Reflective power as infinite according to the bar graph.

other bands suffered the same fault, but not as badly as 160 meters.

rec was fine on all bands. 

SSB worked, but bar graph wasn’t right.

Sent it back. Ten Tec service stated “replaced power supply unit board”
