I have my Cascade together and it seems to work OK except that the power
output is pretty low. A steady tone into the mike yields about 3W max out on
80M and about .75W max on 20M, measured on an OHR QRP wattmeter into a 50
ohm dummy load. Q8 gets warm but Q7 seems to stay cool. I can't find any
wiring errors. Any suggestions where to start looking? What are others
seeing for power output?

Thanks & 73.... Mark AA7TA
