    Can you get full cw power out into a dummy? You will need to maintain 13.8 while testing.

    yes but only on 80 meters when I test the other bands the output drops to almost nothing on 10 meters thinking I might just sell it and let someone else take a crack at it

    Doesn't sound good......seems like a Kenwood mechanic is needed.

    Assuming there are no other problems, that could be a Carrier Suppression adjustment issue, Step 25, page 38, in the TS-130 service manual's
    alignment section, step 25. Be sure to read step 25 BEFORE you attempt the Carrier Suppression adjustment.

    If you don't have the TS-130 service manual, you can download it from my website. Click the following link to download the service manual.
