So far I checked the areas you suggested. Nothing found.
Checked toroids. One had 1 xtra turn. Fixed-did not help.
Removed the binocular toroids and rewound them. Did not help
Re flowed all solder joints. Still not fixed.
Will look at it agn tomorrow!  72 George/W2BPI

I would look over stuff in the neighborhood of Q1, Q4, Q9,
and Q10. Didn't get Q1 in there backwards for example?

But, I'm probably wrong.

Do you have an oscilloscope?

If you use the Ten Tec TP-19 enclosure, I'll be happy to send you a label with

it. A picture of mine in the TPC-19 is here, http://www.wa0itp.com/index.html
I do like the charcoal color. The TP-19 dimensions on the Ten Tec web site
differ from the one I purchased. Mine is 2" x 4.75" x 4" and the PigRig fits
perfectly. http://www.wa0itp.com/pigrig3b.jpg

Changing freqs,say to go to 7122 for Wayne's nets, will require 4 xtals. Three
for the rcvr front end filter, and 1 for the local oscillator. Diz has crystals

I learned code at 9 because my oldest brother (k4rrh) was a radioman in the airforce.
While not a ham I had access to a couple stations in my little town as long as I only used code.
So I was comfortable at 20 wpm well before I was licenced.

There is too. But I'll keep it forever. I can't begin to count the pile ups I've broken with it. Because it is so long,  after all the short calls and crickets stop, all the dx station hears is my lingering "qqj".

I've been trumped in the last 80 meter net Terry....  LOL

Steve wins it 15 to 13....  ;-)
There is a funny story with my call.To me anyway.
I learned code at 9 because my oldest brother (k4rrh) was a radioman in the airforce.
While not a ham I had access to a couple stations in my little town as long as I only used code.
So I was comfortable at 20 wpm well before I was licenced.
My Elmer when I finally got my licence the second time (first novice expired when I found girls and gasoline) knew I loved cw and took one look at my new call and said
 "boy, they shore is a lotta dahs in nat call". 
There is too. But I'll keep it forever. I can't begin to count the pile ups I've broken with it. Because it is so long,  after all the short calls and crickets stop, all the dx station hears is my lingering "qqj".
I regularly hear "qqj?" and bingo, I have em. :-))
See you in the next net or 7030.7. I'm still shooting for the 4s sweep.
 
73 for now,
