I have just come back to Radio after a break of 10 years. My old Ft 817 in CW mode does not seem to put out any power. My SWR meter does not show any power and the Power meter on the radio the bar graph does not light up! The red TX light does come on.
There are four power levels L1 L2 L3 and H (or H may be represented by L3 Flashing.) L3 shows on the LCD but never flashes and H never puts in an appearance.
What am I doing wrong?
