Bernhard.......the 2 stage pot next to the phones jack, marked "RF Power" is 
your variable power adjustment...

Subject: [amsat-bb]  UHF Output Power On FT-847

I recently bought a second-hand FT-847 and something doesn't seem to be working 
properly.  The power meter always reads 50 W whenever I key the mike.  I thought 
that the output could be adjusted because 50 W into a satellite is excessive.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I could reduce the UHF output power to 5 W?
