Should have no bearing if he tunes for max Pout.  The tune C has a large 
safety factor.

This does not seem likely to cause Tune C arcing.

Very seldom seen with the type of parasitic oscillation that tends to 
cause intermittent Tune C or bandswitch arcing.  I have seen only one.

Indeed, Ed, indeed.  If somebody gets nauseated by what I write, why does 
he/she read it?  .  .  To have something to kvetch about?
