    I checked the Alinco website and the PDF Owners Manual and I could not find anything about the 100 W to 50 W modification affecting the 10 w or 1 w RF Power Output Levels. There is a modification that you could do by installing a small toggle switch in the back of the transceiver and install wires between the two Printed Circuit Foils & the small toggle switch so you would be able to switch between 50 W and 100 W if you wanted too. Therefore having 100 W, 50 W, 10 W & 1 W RF Power Output.

    There are 2 pads on the underside of the chassis. According to the manual, soldering them together gives 50 watts out instead of 100 watts out. I haven't tried it on mine. So I don't know if it affects Low and S-Low transmitt power out.

    I have had problems being heard at 10 watts, and not, with the same contact, at 100 watts; however, I have a 1/4 wave vertical without the wire radials in place. So I don't know what affect 50 watts will have on QSOs and being heard for long distances.
