I got my hands on a very clean Hy-Gain 8, not the VIII version. It is a Cybernet, of course. PTBM059COX. I opened it up and it is not modded, but looks to have had the finals replaced at one point. Other than that, rig is super clean. I hooked up a wattmeter and see that AM deadkeys around 5 watts. But on SSB, I can barely pass 5 watts and this is speaking loudly into the mic. I have the schematic and trying to figure out where to look first. Any ideas where to start looking? I am familiar with the AM Cybernets, not the SSB models. I figured out the ceramic VR will adjust AM power, not SSB. Any help would be appreciated. In the Tampa Bay FL area, no one will service or align old classics. The techs here only deal with "Ranger" types. So I am on my own to try and bring this rig back up to par. Same radio as shown on this thread: https://www.worldwidedx.com/threads/hygain-8-not-viii-40-ch-ssb.221350/ Thanks in advance!
