You're right on there Bill.  I've been using 2 of them for a LONG time
Thought I'd pass along something I found with my RS-20 that quit on me.

It would start up OK, but as soon as I would hit the transmit button, it 
would shut down.  Resoldered all the connections, checked the 
transistors--everything I could think of but it wouldn't work right.  I took 
the board out that the caps are connected to and found one of the screws 
that held the caps to the board were loose.  Re-tightened the screws and it 
has been FB ever since.  Made my day!  73
