My apologies to the group.
I forgot that "reply" now replies to the group and not the individual.
I've made several replies to Wayne and Terry that were meant to be direct.
Nothing to hide, just not wanting to tie up the group with drivel.
Sorry for taking up the space. I'll pay closer attention.

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.

George,

I'd suspect that the final amp is oscillating.  Or could be in the chain prior to the final.

If you have an O'scope,you might take a looks that way.

Hi George,
 
Listening to you on 40 meters this morning in QSO with W8QP.
I tried to call you first but couldn't figure out which signal was your findamental
as you are radiating on the whole band 1.2khz apart.
Thought you might want to know about it before an OO sights in on you.
