Test gear available: limited, volt-ohm meter- solder pencil, basic..
Symptoms: Just purchased, 3 yrs old but got it brand new never taken out of box. Turned up vr16 for more modulation, not clipped. Was doing in the 20 watt range working perfectly for a few hours. Power started getting lower and lower. Now it is keying hardly nothing and swinging to about 5 watts max. Same on ssb transmit power is very low.
