Even more odd since the original question was specific to the KW-1
transmitter and its associated circuits. I settled on a 4.7 meg resistor in
my 'updates' which seems to fit my voice well (more midrange than bass). I
think folks got focused more on the pros ad cons of the crystal D-104 which
is intentionally a bit peaky. The best thing you can do with the preamp
versions is bypass the preamp in most cases. The unamplified pre-CB model is
the one to look for.
