Actually, it has been my experience that the problem is worse with
external keying, at least when I use a straight key, I experienced very
severe warmup drift. Putting in the mod described in QST a couple of
years ago will fix the problem. I can send you the mod if you don't have
it. It was discussed on this reflector.

Bob: I have been contemplating a Scout for my mobile rig for some time now, but have not yet made the move. One of the delaying factors has been the notorious freq hop/skip/jump that so many of the scouts show. It sounds just like the PTO hop of all the older Ten Tec rigs that are in need of a bit of TLC on the PTO. Even so, I am a big fan of Ten Tec, with 7 of their old rigs on hand.

I would like to see the mod, if it is not too much trouble for you to send
