|Thanks, Zack. Tomorrow morning I'm going to drop the radio off with my elmer. He's going to keep it for a few days and try to figure out why I can't get it to low power for tuning.

|Hey, guys. I'm a new ham. I got a used Alinco DX-70 setup in my kitchen. I bought a 6m-40m dipole and have it strung outside the kitchen window.
Between the two I have an MFJ 925 antenna tuner ( http://www.mfjenterprises.com/Product.php?productid=MFJ-925 ).
I haven't had much luck getting it to work. Almost every time I attempt to transmit on any HF band it beeps "QRP" back to me in CW, which I think means it wants a lower power.
I can't get the radio to drop to low power so I whisper so that the radio is only pulling a few watts. Then the tuner's green light comes on telling me I think that we have a good tuned SWR.
But when I then go to transmit at full power the tuner starts beeping "QRP" at me in CW again.
I did reset the radio and MFJ tuner to factory settings, but it hasn't helped.
Thanks very much in advance,
