Back in the 70s when I used to help a buddy in his CB shop on weekends,
this was a commonly requested mod by CBers who'd come dragging in a
newly-found Johnson whiteface. My buddy liked the $25 of pure profit
to just jump or clip out dropping resistor. But it rubbed me the wrong
way, so I volunteered to do the mod one time, and just relocated the
resistor to a different point in the same circuit! The dopey CBer's
good buddies said he "put in a lot more pounds" afterward - some kind
of placebo effect I guess.
