My IC-7100 is showing no power out with SSB. This makes no sense. When I use AM, it’s enough to tune my Tarheel with the TargetTuner. But the power meter for SSB shows no output power. Really wish I had an actual power meter. And wait my laptop is on battery? But it’s plugged into the inverter! What gives. Only 7 more hours until the contest starts.

Looks like I am DOA (dead on arrival). Out of the contest. Brought my K3 as backup but forgot the cable for the computer. Laptop has only 1 hour charge left.

Calling it DOA.

Hope the rest get on the air. This has been a very frustrating day.
