Well, well.  I thought I got my carrier oscillators just right
(by ear).  SB-N sounds about the same as SB-R, and I was able
to get the CW position to center on 750 Hz with the 250 Hz
filter inserted.  Thought it was great.  Slipped in an 8 pole
SSB filter for the main filter and felt I had a real radio....

I put it on the air, and though SSB has no problem, I can't  
get more than about 28 watts output on CW with the drive turned
all the way up.  SSB normal.  Geez.  What might I have done here?
Any guesses?  I went in and pushed in all the connectors, crystals,
etc., for bad contact.  I slid the power button up and down a few
times.  No change.  ALC control won't light up the light in Lock
or CW position and max out is under 30.  Darn.
