Anyone align one of these rigs?  I found that in CW my center 
frequency was about 850 Hz (and that is rough with the 250 Hz
filter).  I got the audio filter and its center was dead on
at 750 Hz.  So....I needed to get them to match.

I looked in the manual, page 3-18, and the procedure refers to
C1 and C2 only.  There is C1, C2 and C3.  I suspect a misprint
(there must be one, as they are marked on the schematic differently
than the instruction references.)  Anyway, I can get the CW
center frequency to about 750 Hz, but then it is difficult to
get the center where I want it on SB-N without taking SB-R out into
never never land.  I got the two to "sound" the same (centered
properly?) - that is, SB-N and SB-R sound approximately the same
place relative to center, but then the sound from the receiver is
a bit too high cut for my tastes.  If I get SB-N where I want it,
SB-R is in bad shape.  Oh well.

Anyone have success with this procedure?
