Hi Wade,

Back in the early 80's I added RIT to my SB-102 NOT so much for reasons of "alignment", but rather, to chase OTHER guys up & down the band who weren't zero beat with ME, and NOT affect my own transmitted signal's frequency...

It was the BEST mod I ever executed on the rig---next to 250-HZ Fox-Tango CW filter that I added, that is...!
