Here's a curiosity I'd be interested in 
getting input on.

The 77SX seems to be easier to tune using 
the "B" setting, rather than the A.

It used to be easier to tune on 160M using 
the A position on the band switch but now 
I find in the "A" position,  I have to 
rotate the loading cap maximally to the 
zero position for tuning and it seems to 
dead end out in the A position. I now have 
to use the "B" position to tune it, and it 
now comes close to bottoming out at zero, 
whereas it never used to have any 
requirement to go to the "B" position.

I'm thinking the padding doorknobs for 
160M have softened over the years.
