Low power out on new build 60/40/30/20 rig

General discussion and support for the Peaberry SDR V2.

Solved!

I really appreciate everyone's patience and help! I was able to set the mode in HDSDR to CW and key with the enter button. That gave a nice wide sine at I think full TX power. This is what I measured on the scope with a dummy load:

20m 19.6v p-p => 0.96w
30m 24v p-p => 1.44w
40m 24v p-p => 1.44w
60m 25.4v p-p => 1.61w

Now that looks more like the peaberry's specs! And far better than what I expected on 30m, 40 and 60m!

Is this average or above normal for these bands? I assume it depends partly on the BS170's.

Thanks again.

Looks very good.

What changes did you make to get things working (if anything other than using CW mode)?

I did not change a thing physically. It is a standard by the instructions build. Now I need to get audio piped from quisk to fldigi.

If anyone has set up SDRshell on linux with fldigi (or any other low resource backend) I would love to hear about their experience.
