    HEY MINE DOES ABOUT THE SAME. I GOT IT TO SWING UP TO 10 IF I SPEAK LOUD INTO THE MIC. but It usually swings right at 5-6.
    Anyway I made 3 contacts today at over 2000 miles on 28. I'd say leave it. Clean is more powerful than loud and dirty.

    going inside the radio with wire cutters isnt going to make it work better... leave the radio work to the people that know what theyre doing

    and splatter, also more than likely sound like total shit... but yes you are correct it will make it louder... so if thats all you want then snip away...

    25 LTD CLASSIC - VR5 or CUT D9 - L10, L9, L8

    If you mess with the "L" adjustments don't run the deadkey too high...

    6 watts pep or average? 6 watts average is typical of a simple tweak. If you really work one over you can get around 9 average. A clean radio big amp and a driver is the best mod. Modding a radio for max average watts is not the way to go if you care about clean. Loud nasty radios are awesome for fucking with truckers though. I have a few.

    Funny, I am a trucker, and run a loud nasty radio to fuck with truckers. What does that say about me?

    So right now it does 1 watt swings to 6 watts and you want to turn it up???
    even if you got it to deakey 5 watts and swing to 15 nobody would be able to tell the differnce
    and you would be putting a strain on the radio
    if it keys 1 and swing 6 then leave it there
    get a small 100 watt amp and you be bigger and better than most of those big fancy export wattblasters

    Exactly what I plan on.
