The sidetone on my Corsair II (which I've had for a few months now -
it's my first TT rig, and one with which I am delighted) is *not* a
particularly clean tone.  I would find it hard to match the pitch of 
an incoming signal to it.

Does this mean my rig has a problem (with the sidetone), or is this
simply 'how it is'? 

PS Don't forget, the sidetone pitch is variable, and therefore may not
be adjusted close to 750Hz.
