After I purchased my AL-82 I discovered that someone had replaced the original 
parasitic suppressors with the nichrome wire/3 resistors per unit type.  I have 
had no problems but the resistors become VERY hot at even 400W on 10M and have 
started falling apart.  At powers higher than 400W I actually smell them!

Was there anything wrong with the original suppressors or did someone just get 
carried away and replace them because it seemed the “in” thing to do?  I am 
thinking of making a set of “originals” and installing them so I can 
occasionally operate 10M without fear of having those resistors burn out.
