well that was easy. and you where right Colin. the fix was just a matter of 
moving ctk in front of cck rather than following cck. presto super match and 
gained almost 200w out. the design is the yu1aw 2m ptfe. i have built 
several of these now and they all have had some little somthing tweaky. now 
i think i want to get away from the ptfe and use doorknob caps at the end of 
the plate line. any thoughts on this guys?
