2100 is about right in standby on CW while 2600-2700 is fine on SSB.

I hope its just out of tolerance metering resistors and not the filter caps loading it down with high leakage.

        Thanks Carl, well, only driving it with about 75 watts, wont go over that with my 746PRO to keep it happy...and not trying to sqeeze every last watt out either, like some folks.. ;)   When I rebuilt the power supply, could have redone that voltage doubler circuit, since it uses the same transformer at the Clipperton L, but didnt want to push the 572B's either, 2100 volts at idle now. So will just be careful and tune very slowly on the Tune knob, hate to write in tune positions but maybe stick some colorful tape on the exact loading spots..hi hi ...geez..its a junk style amplifier anyway and I've already cut up and modified it so much..don't think I can hurt the value of this amp any more..hi hi

          "Id start there and in the CW position and tune for maximum smoke."

          Careful, Carl, there are a lot of hams out there who take every word as gospel and will try to do that.
