The collar of the MIC --)- RF PWR knob adjusts the power down on mine.

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
