When I received the amp that's the way the bandswitch and the TUNE Cap was. I repaired the bandswitch. The previous owner said he had nearly 700 watts output on 10 meters and I said no way not with the contacts the way they were. So he refunded me part of the payment I made. All the testing I have been doing has been into a dummy load. As for antenna VSMR less than 1.5:1 I have a Titan DX.
