Something does not add up here. A few tests will point to the answer. With the Icom in line and in the TX mode , full power out. What is: 1) The voltage measurement right at the radio connector ? 2) The current reading on the Astron? 3) The voltage measurement on the Astron measured at the terminals...

One added great point . I never thought of this....

Latest update, I decided to play him a little. I emailed him and stated that if he sent me the amp (since it was pulled from eBay in less than 1 hour) I would pay him via his wishes.
