Sorry for the delayed response, but I just joined this board.

I hate to answer a question with a question, but, do you know if this radio uses a discrete final transistor or module? I had an old Kenwood 2 meter transceiver that put out only 300 milliwatts high or low. Turns out it was a hairline crack in one of the silver striplines inside the final module. "Painted" the trace with a thin soldering iron tip and silver solder, and, voila, 35 watts out.

Maybe this will help you.
