I have one of those too, but have probably used it a dozen times in the past
5 years or so. When on 10m I much prefer my Eico 720 with modified 730
modulator, with the rig excited by a 40m DDS VFO. Sounds much better and
puts out a bigger signal.
The 7 watts on AM wouldn't be bad when 10m is open. But the thing has
terrible audio. I looked at the schematic and couldn't figure out how to
modify the audio so it wouldn't be so tin-can sounding. Has anyone else
figured out how to do this?
Of course you could always run a "leenyar" to boost the power.
