The MC refl power was going up and the FSS PC drive was so large that I had to turn up the FSS...


Looks like I bumped the PS for the 21.5 MHz test setup and changed the supply voltage of the amplifier
from +24 to +38 V. This made the amplifier go hot after a few hours and the output eventually dropped.

Yoichi and I walked out there now and it was too hot to touch. We turned it off and put it on a heat
sink to make it chill out and it came back after a few minutes. We have set the input to the amp to
be -7 dBm instead of -8 dBm after deciding that we should take into account the 1 dB loss in the cable
run and deliver a real +17 dBm to the mixer.

The right way is to calibrated the LO mon of the FSS.
