0 FT 817 Power level Icon. How to read


Originally Posted by: "Mike Olbrisch" kd5kc

Here is how to read the FT-817 power display.

To control the power levels, press the function (F) button for 1 second, [Pg
12, item 8], then rotate the SELECT knob [Pg 12, item 13] to display menu
item 9 [ PWR MTR xxx ] on Pg 15. (xxx will equal pwr for POWER level, alc
for ALC level, swr for SWR display or mod for FM deviation level). Press
button A to control the power level, button B to select the meter display
[Pg 12, item 9]. Press the PWR button (button A) to step through the
display.

With an input voltage or battery voltage GREATER THAN ~ 11.5 volts, the
display will look like this.

(L_l__) One bar displayed = 0.5 watts.
(L_ll_) Two bars displayed = 1.0 watts.
(L_lll) Three bars displayed = 2.5 watts.
(L____) No bars displayed = 5.0 watts.

With an input voltage or battery voltage LESS THAN ~ 11.5 volts, the display
will look like this.

(L_l__) One bar displayed = 0.5 watts.
(L_ll_) Two bars displayed = 1.0 watts.
(L_lll) Three bars displayed = 2.5 watts.
(L____)-(L_lll) (BLINKING) Three BLINKING bars displayed = 5.0 watts.
*note1.

This information is in the FT-817ND manual, on page 28. It just isn't
written very well. 

*note 1: The blinking display is a warning that you are using the 5-watt
level while on battery power, and with the stock YAESU battery, your time on
the air will be limited. Using a larger external battery, or one of the
larger capacity internal batteries will increase your air-time considerably.

Hope this helps you understand what your radio is doing.
