I looked at the schematics of the Memory 8012 (clear) and what I could find on your Dragon CB240N (fuzzy from Poland), the Memory drives the Final and Driver directly from the audio IC chip TDA2003 through D39, no transformer. Does your Dragon have the transformer or is without?

If without transformer, then the voltage being applied to the Collectors of the Final and Driver will be about 6v in AM (or about 1/2 of VCC).
If it has the transformer, then the voltage being applied will be 13v.
Do you have a better scan of the schematic for your CB240N ?
The reason why I ask is at 1/2 VCC, this means the output RF would be 1/4 of what it would be if full voltage through transformer.
Thanks for answering.
My Dragon does have the transformer installed, you can see it in this photo:
But if you look closely, I do not have the IC that is to the left of the TDA, like in your photo, the one that is bolted to the chassis.
Measuring the voltage at some point on the transformer can it indicate if there is a problem further away from the 2SC2314?
I do not have a better scan of my schematic, I did it years ago from the manual that I brought.
