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.

Need some help with MFJ-925 auto tuner ... speedmaster on 15/5/12
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.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much in advance,
Chris
