The PTO can be improved by experimenting with the value of the
temperature compensation capacitor, if you can find N750 caps.
I find that I can reduce the AGC popping by shutting off the RF amp or
adjusting the RF gain to keep the S-meter below mid-scale.
I replaced the 4 pole filter with the 8 pole and it makes a very
noticeable difference. The skirt selectivity is much sharper.
