Offers for free stuff? And Belton hamfest is right around the corner. That is tempting Lou. I wrote: with the pot to CW gives about 20% more output, Not anymore if ever, I was under the impression that it was somehow working with no ALC cable connected. Perhaps simply the tubes coming up to and gettering. There was dynamic changing by the minute of these tubes. Even after hours of filament ON time. The TX RX relay is not acting nice, dirty contacts on Receive. Cleaning tonight. Perhaps a replacement even. On SSB: 950 Watts PEP last night, tuned up with 80 watts CW excitation! 100 watts CW tune up makes stuff happen I swear that I saw 18 Ohm (3x in parallel) resistors inside those Drake parasitic chokes. Well I'll be in there later today and attempt to verify. If so that would make these combined... a 5 Ohm/ 15 Watt resistor.
