I first need to once again thank Dan WB5AFY for sending me the
Bandswitch i needed for my Valiant. He sent it N/C including shipping. Everyone
please applaud this fine Amateur for whom the fraternity should be so proud
Afterwoods, I placed an ad here mentioning that i had parts for the Viking
two which i am parting out and was able to help a happy ham with the top
cabinet cover, n/c. I have other Viking two parts, So if anyone has
needs send me an email.
Next, I wonder if anyone can assist me with the Valiant i am working on.
The Bandswitch transplant went perfect and the Valiant is now working on
all bands again . The question is , the power output varies considerably
from band to band. The transmitter is feeding a Cantenna, so its 50 ohms
on all bands. Is this a normal condition? I think not.
On 40 i get easily the 150 watts output but on 75 and 160 i get 100 watts
, all at the recommended 330 mills plate current. Would it be that the
taps on the Final tank coil are not soldered in the right place???. Any
P.S. On 160 and 75 i can get the 150 watts but the plate current is way
