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. 
I dunno...

YMMV - 73, Brian "Bry" Carling, AF4K
