Hi, guys, I am after some advice from any CW users operating the FT-450d. I have a quite new 450d...I have noticed if I plug in a morse key and key on any power setting from 5w and up...my ALC goes off the scale...at lease 4 bars over the max end scale. My buddies 450d does not do this when he uses his key...although it does go to the max limit on the ALC scale. I have tried it into a dummy load and its just the same. I have not spoken to Yaesu yet as I want to find out what happens to other users. Just to concerned to use CW at the moment...don't want to blow the PA....front right-hand side of the radio gets quite warm after say a 5min QSO on voice. P.S. I get the same thing if I key up on FM even at 5w....4 bars over max on the ALC. Voice SSB ALC is around 75% to 80% on the scale. Any ideas guys.
