Seems I have 7.5V at the collectors of both the 1306 and the 1307 in AM and 13.8 on SSB on Xmit..The base does show the correct 0.64 on both finals...I show audio on the scope at the antenna output, and on the SAMS circuitrace at points 125, 126 and 123.
TR45, FET2 and FET6 all show good.
I received 2 new 1306 and 1307 transistors today and they show the same values on the Sencore TF46 transistor checker as far as gain, with no leakage so I assume the finals that are presently in the 457 are good.
I don't think I mentioned that the receive is very good on this radio, and I have cleaned all the pots and channel selector etc. with DoxIT.
