The MARK-V FT-1000MP cooling system is de-
signed to handle continuous duty transmission at
200 watts output. However, for continuous-duty digi-
tal modes like RTTY, we recommend limiting your
transmissions to 3 minutes or less, with at least 3
minutes receive in between transmissions. Place
your hand on the transceiver occasionally to en-
sure that it's not getting too hot, and try to keep
power output at 100 watts or less.
You can limit the maximum RF power output to 75
watts via programming, by recalling menu selection
4-0 and choosing reduced power output.
