Ok guys,
  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 
                                                    Chet brown, Wb2ahk
