Default Texas Star 500

I own a Texas Star DX-500. It's powered by an 100 amp alternator, 1
auxilery batter, and 4 awg wire, reduced to 6 awg at the amp. I'm
getting no more that 310 watts on AM max. and about 425 on sideband.
Does this seem a little low to you, or am I hoping for too much? The amp
is being driven with my rci 2950, RG-8, and a 102" steel whip with 1:1.2
match. Hmmmmmm.

If its in a mobile/car/truck, you're gonna see less than compared to a base.

i find that i have to drive my 500 with a texas star v+ modualator to get the 500 watts. remember, its a STRAIT FOUR PILL. theyre basicly a five pill with no driver. you have to drive them to see their advertised wattage.
