Yes. That's a possibility.DL2MF wrote: ↑Thu Feb 06, 2020 9:14 amSuggest, when in 5W mode -> Function + Long keypress Right arrow
On 70cm even providing max drive to the PA only outputs around 5.5W, and I suspect that as the battery goes flat, even with max PA drive the output would not be 5W
On 2m however the output is substantially above 5W.
The other possibility is to only enable it for DMR which is only 50% duty cycle, so heat dissipation would not be a problem.
However I don't know whether the harmonic distortion increases considerably if the PA drive is set to its maximum.
