Re: Ideal Voltage & Current for K2

I run mine at 12.0 volts. That gives plenty of overhead for even high power operation. You can run it lower if you are staying qrp cw, though. Having it higher means internal regulators just have to dissipate that much more power as waste heat.If voltage is too low, then transmit distortion and intermodulation products on SSB can increase. This would be less of a problem with CW, I think.
