The resistor is there to prevent voltage surge at turn on, if it is across 
the positive and negative terminals.
It provides a constant bleeder current for the output capacitors.

For controlling your grounding, that should be done AT the RADIO, that is 
the place to ground the negative of the supply, not at the supply.

However, make sure there is a suitable disc ceramic RF bypass cap across the 
supply plus and minus as in later 35 Amp Astron design.
