Pardon me, but are you sure?  When I key mine, I sure hear something 
clacking.  Then while in cw tx mode if I listen carefully I hear the soft 
ticking of something that sounds like a reed relay.

thanks for the adivce re the switch. I checked the meter with a VOM and it 
is okay (for now).  there's a pot and a fixed resistor if I recall correctly 
in the line to the meter when it is switched to measure Ic.  I'll check them

<There are no TR relay contacts in the Corsair... Its diode switched. The
intermittent receive often comes from the separate receive antenna
switch on the back panel. Work in a half drop of DeoxIt to taker are of
that problem.

Any current that passes through a meter to lift and burn a foil is
usually destructive to the meter.
