I am concerned that I my have damaged my president Randy 3. I caught the antenna and am concerns i have damaged it and damaged the radio. The power output seens to be low now. I had cheched it with using my basestation antenna and meter. The output is much lower than my president McKinley. I am unsure whether it could be fixed it I have damaged the radio.

When you say the power is low, how low is it? Have you tried a dummy load and a meter to test it?
