I don't know if the power supply come from the same XFMR or not but what
does "10 on the knob" mean?

   For my Ranger / amp situation, I originally looked at doing exactly 
this.  I have a couple of reservations - first is that the LV Supply
have to stand the additonal load over the long haul, and second that I'd

really rather the mod section be running at "10 on the knob".

   Also, the resistor, if variable (even the 'slider' type) allows one
adjust the output as needs be - I want to run RTTY which is even more 
severe than AM in terms of overall duty cycle , and I want to spare my
amp (an Ameritron AL-80) as much as possible.

   Then again, I have the schematics for the "attenuator" as Johnson
it - to go between the Ranger output and linear input.

  And of course there a lots of topologies that will accomplish the task
lowering the output of a tetrode or beam-power RF section without 
upsetting the relative current balances.

   Mebbe I oughta should by a junker Ranger... Just In Case...   ;}
