R138 is used to adjust the RF power output of the amplifier in internal and mode. Turn the potentiometer
clockwise for higher power and counterclockwise for lower power. RF output power will depend on power
supply voltage (10-16V DC) and RF drive level (+27 to +30dBm)
A pair of LED indicators are located next to the Power Adjustment. The lower indicator (GREEN) will
indicate that DC power is applied and the PA is in the receive state. The upper indicator (RED) will indicate
that the PA is in the transmit state. If both are on it indicates an Overtemperature fault. (See section 3.4)
