I will put a volt meter onto the circuit and read it out while transmitting. I will get back with you in a couple of hours. Thanks Dan

Looks like the battery charger is not working properly battery voltage dropped to 10.5 volt. I installed a new charger and the unit works just fine now.
Thanks for the help
