Here's a bit paraphrased from an HR article of Cornell, WB3JZO / KW7CD from
Nov, 1986 - he addresses the Argosy, but it looks like you could try this on
others like the 544 (Triton IV), or Omni A,B, or C.
"Another cap change could benefit AGC action and reduce popping in some
rigs - C12 on the same 525 IF/AF board gets changed to a 22uf 35V tantulum.
In the 544 and 546, experiment with C22 on the IF/AGC - try out the 22uf
