I'm running a test on my K3 with Olivia 8/500 data mode at 40 W output. The duty cycle is 1/3 transmit (4 min) and 2/3 receive. A "LOW BAT" warning and beep occur occasionally during transmit, however, the ALC remains at about 4 bars solid, one flickering. The voltage during receive is more than 11 V, but during transmit it drops into the 9.x range sporadically.
The test is into a dummy load and I have no way to judge the signal quality. When, at this power level, should I stop the test? What's the best indication that the voltage is too low for a clean and usable signal?
