Thanks Don. I used a 100 uf capacitor at 160 vdc, so it should be
sufficient. I hooked it up exactly as you stated, positive to ground
and the negative lead toward the center tap of the HV transformer. I
wish I could say it stopped it, but I still have problems. It did stop
a lot of the talk back, but the feed back is still there albeit not
nearly as prevalent since I switched the 2A3 driver tubes. I made a
couple of modifications to the dynamic microphone input to better
accommodate the non amplified D-104, but I can't see how that would have
anything to do with it. I can move the mic several feet away (it has a
long cord - possibly too long) and turn the audio up enough to get 100%
modulation on the scope. The 614 has a pretty high output and it takes
little to overdrive the modulator.
