Ah ha! A little unintended "double entendre" there for sure!
The CLIPPERS in these transmitters are one of the MAIN reaosns
why people modify them! To get rid of some of the distortion!
I can only speak for the Valiant that I restored,
BUT let me tell you - it did make a HUGE improvement in audio
reports from other guys receiving me when I bypassed that darn
6AL5 recitifier (clipper) plum OUT of the audio chain (grin!)
Yes, a nasty clipper circuit indeed. Maybe nobody was using them properly.
YMMV - 73, Brian "Bry" Carling, AF4K
