Yes, isn't the CW transmit offset set differently (different crystals in 
the BFO) in the "real" 6+ ?  I also understand that the product detector 
circuit in the 6 was improved at some point (second order problems in 
the passband) later in the 6 series, maybe in the 6+ .  I have a mod kit 
from the UK that improves the product detector and alleviates the 
problem  in the stock 6.  That's the information I have, not a big deal, 
really, but a difference.
