Nouveau 75 power output

Now that I've got my modulator settled down I'm wondering what others are seeing for RF power output?

With a 13.5VDC supply I get 2.8 watts resting carrier and right at 11 watts PEP on voice peaks with 100% modulation.   That was good enough to be heard around the midwest this morning on the Midwest Classic Radio Net, but it's about half of what the Nouveau 75 specification says it should be.

Some comparisons will help determine whether my modulator is still not working right, thanks.
