I received a suggestion to look for a modification in Hints&Kinks. I found 
SOMETHING that may give some insight from the index for QST 1990 APR P36 and
QST 1981 OCT P45. I have to find these issues to see if it will help me.

I did confirm mixing products getting to the rcvr from A+B operation. I was 
tuned to 3.5159 on VFO-A, 3.5130 on VFO-B. When listened to A and B with the 
balance set for near equal levels of A and B I could clearly hear W4XJ working 
folks...he turned out to be on 3.5102 (my rcv freq). This is clearly B minus A 
away from where I was tuned.

This has been confusing to me in the past, since I use the VFO-B nearly 
exclusively contests...a contest is no time to try and figure out where the 
hell that station comes from when I press "RAB". Now I know!
