KWS-1 Good News

I can get full output power, but only when the transmitter dial is set all the way to the right. This is the case on every band.

The VFO has the correct frequency readings across the 80M scale, and all but one reading using the scope seems correct.

The VIF seems way too low in voltage.

My friend Bruce, AH0U believes the PTO got messed up in shipping. I checked it mechanically, and it moves when it should (i.e changing from USB to USB).

It seems like the PTO is not tracking the VFO, that the PTO is off by the full width of the band.

But because I’m getting full power out on all bands, this means my power supply restore must have been good.

I’m reading the schematic, especially at the 1st Mixer …..
