My OMNI-C has declining drive above the 40M band.
On 40M/80M/160M, the drive is set to about 6 1/2.
Going up in frequency from there I have to increase the drive in order to get reasonable power out.
By the time that I get to 10M, I have the drive all the way up and I have to speak up.
Any ideas?

Is this measuring into a known-good dummy load? If not, that could be a clue.

A lot of the older stuff did seem to drop off a bit on the higher bands (10/15).
