I too have analog Triton. I have not found Skirt to be a problem!
I thought I could zero the rig just fine with the Dial Skirt.
Hand Capacitance has no effect on my plastic VFO Knob.
I did notice that when front panel was removed Capacitance was a issue.
I also noticed that if grounding and bonding through screws is not
I can change the Frequency by touching the Cabinet.
The cover over the VFO/PTO is very touch sensitive.
Loose screws here made my dial skirt go nuts. Keep in mind that I had front
panel off too.
My 2 cents worth from the pig greaser.
