There aren't many people that are familiar with this technology any longer.
Anyway, this allows me to go on to the nest steps of getting on the air with this gear!
I'm glad it worked out.
If the rig has any gain-flatness issues, we can work them out while improving IMD at the same time.
When I was 11 or 12, I wanted desperately to be a Ham. We were very poor, with dirt floors in some rooms, so I had no choice but to build things. Since I couldn't buy parts, I had to get them from the dump and from people's throw away stuff.
Since I wanted to get on the air, and I could not copy any article, I had to read and experiment and learn how this old stuff worked. It kept me alive and out of trouble, most of my friends were dead by the time I was in my 20's. This is why I really love seeing someone else build stuff from that era. I'm just so envious of you, Tom, and the neat work you do.
If you lived near me, I'd be a real pest. We'd start a new company, like Collins.
