Here is 2 answers per my experience.  As with all things others may
have a different answer.

I would appreciate any comments from Scout 555 users on the following.

i) Do they find the transmit (ssb) frequency drifts when they use a
supply source less than 13.8 volts?

No one has ever said they have to retune when talking to me on my
Scout 555.

ii) What have been the cures for the drift on high speed CW?

iii)Has anyone come up with a mod to over come the lack of an rf gain

Actually, there is a gain control.  It is located on the underside of the
transceiver, through a hole.  A bit inconvenient, but it is there for your
use.  I am going to remote control mine to the front soon.

iv)Which microphones seem to suit the rig best, apart from the standard
hand held which comes with it?

I tried my Kenwood mike, and my friend said it was not as good as the
one that came with the Scout.

v) Has anyone used it with an amplifier? Comments?

Thanking all in advance,
