Thanks for your reply, I was looking for any suggestions to improve it,
and I have not received such notes, but LA4OE sent me a complete
collection of circuit diagrams.
I may modify the AGC circuit using few 1N4148 such that RF gain is
always active, but indicator tube does not show RF gain setting. Some
timeconstant has to be added (see Drake 2-B) using 47k in series with
1uF, and 2M2 (in paralell with 1N4148) to RF gain.
I also wish to test an improved product detector. The CW detector is not
a product detector, it was made before ssb, but W5DA indicates a
possible way to improve this, 73 June 79, page 33 fig 3. The IF input to
this valve 8V1may also need 1:10 (?) attenuation - 560pF/5600pF
combinations of grid circuit capacitors.
wonder why Germans very seldom are seen on the english newsgroups, I
have tried to use some German groups, but they are usually very much
afraid of replying, one must write in German, while French and Dutch
amateurs frequently post comments to English newsgroups. Several Germans
post in English to the VHF/UHF/SHF newsreflectors I subscribe to.
