Our family recently purchased a couple of Midland MXT400's. I am trying them out using my GP-9 dual band antenna, but of course the SWR is very high (2.5:1) since it is far from the design frequency. The heat sinks don't get very warm with say a minute or so key down at high power setting, but I wonder if anyone has run this type of rig and damaged the finals at these SWR levels.
Although I recently joined the group, I have been reading the mail for the past year or so and I know that there are some very accomplished technical experts here with a lot of practical experience.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
