Looking at some different 220 capable radios, this one is tri-band, 50 watts on UHF and VHF but only 5 on 220, why?

The PA doesn't work on that frequency, so they just pass the exciter output to the antenna port.

Thank you! I was like, so confused. I'd like a bit more than 5 watts on 220, I'll look at some other options.
