Default Re: Barlow Wadley alignment

Thanks for your response Hugo,I already had your article printed out.
Test equipment nor experience should be the problem.
I ought to have both.

My concern is that the manual was written without feedback from practice.
By example;in the same script they tell you to set the fully opened capacitor to 0 MHz.
But then you do not get an equal of overtravel at both ends of the scale.
It is either way: or the thumbwheel is stopped by itīs mechanical endstops or by the maximum opening of the tuning capacitor.
Best wishes
