    Does anyone know the procedure to adjust via the menus the allowable swr limits before foldback using the 857?

    At 1.5:1 it cuts the power and clips badly. Perhaps 2:1 would be more like it?

    I cant seem to locate the procedure.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Go join the yahoo group on this radio, once you are a member go to the files section and get the info. Hopefully if you do this you have a reference load you can use to carefully adjust the settings. I purchased my 857 back the first part of November and I noticed the swr foldback on mine starts at 2:1

    I've gone over half of their messages in the group and havent found anything yet. I am assuming I will.

    Thanks for the reply.

    go to the file labeled alignment and scroll down the .pdf file until you get to the vswr set.
