[TenTec] Corsair II PBT Question

I'd put my money on the 2.4khz filter. 

I worked in a paragon that sounded okay but rf power dropped off as you went higher in freq. at 10meters only 10-15 watts of power. 

Turned out to be a bad filter in the 9mhz circuit. 

On my corsair II, I could never balance the sb-n and sb-r perfectly. 

I'd try a different filter first.

> My Corsair II has a problem with the PBT adjustment. I can not get the SB-N and SB-R to sound the same.  When I adjust coil L4 the closest I can get is with the slug all the way to the top which raises the frequency f the 15.3012 crystal.  I measured the frequency range of the 15.3012 oscillator and it varies from 15.3012 with the PBT control full CW to 15.2969 full CCW,  I found that SB-R audio quality is very tinny. I was wondering since the crystal reads 15.2969 with PBT CCW (no voltage on the varactor) means the crystal is too low in frequency. Tentec  wants 30 shipped so before I order one I was wondering what the experts on this group think.
